Arsenal make move for £40m-rated as Alexis Sanchez's replacement

As according to The Sun, Arsenal are looking to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Julian Draxler in the January transfer window.

With Alexis Sanchez's current contract situation with the club yet unresolved, it's important the Gunners have potential replacements lined up in January to come in should the Chile international leave. Sanchez's current deal with Arsenal runs out at the end of the season meaning the former Barcelona man could be forced to leave the club next month.

As per The Sun link, the tabloid claimed that one potential replacement for Sanchez is Paris Saint-Germain Julian Draxler, who Arsene Wenger sees as the ideal candidate.

The paper adds that Arsenal have even already made initial enquiries into making the deal happen next month.

However, there's an issue in the deal, with Arsenal only willing to sanction just £30m for the Germany international, with the French club holding out for a £40m fee, according to the reports.

Sanchez's direct contribution since he joined the club from Barcelona has been quite impressive.  He has netted 124 goals in 162 appearances for Arsenal, being one of our most important players for years now.
