Arsene Wenger knows that he will lose Alexis Sanchez and is trying to make sure he will get something in return of the Chilean.

According to the Daily Star, the French manager is now considering a swap deal with PSG that will see Julian Draxler move to Emirates and Alexis Sanchez on Parc des Princes. The Parisian club have shown their limitless buying power this summer, when they have transferred Neymar Jr. from Barcelona and Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.

The arrivals of the two players, together with the contribution of Edinson Cavani, meant that there is not much space left for anyone else in the attack of the Parisians. Furthermore, PSG now has to sell a number of its players to balance their books and make sure they will avoid FFP sanctions.

However, this did not stop PSG from looking to add one more superstar to their squad. The Parisians are rumoured to have already offered Alexis Sanchez €10m as a sign on fee, to secure his services for next summer, when he will become available for free.

Arsene Wenger knows that Sanchez will not sign a new deal with Arsenal and in the same time wants to make sure that the player will not end up at one of their Premier League rivals. For this reason, the French manager is ready to allow Sanchez to leave in January, if PSG would be willing to let Julian Draxler move to Emirates.
