£40million star set for Arsenal swap deal in major January Shake-up

According to reports, Arsenal are weighing up the possibility of a winter swap deal, which would see Chilean Alexis Sanchez and PSG star Julian Draxler swap places.

Alexis Sanchez will see his current contract at Arsenal expire next summer, and with no renewal looking likely to being agreed, the forward could move for free in July.

However, Arsenal could look to act sooner rather than later by getting something valuable for him later in the new year, and The Daily Star report that they could agree a stunning deal with French giant PSG involving Julian Draxler.

The Germany international playmaker only joined the French Ligue 1 giants back in January for a fee thought to be around £40million, according to The Guardian, and the 24-year-old attacker has done pretty well, netting 11 goals in 33 matches and establishing himself as a major figure in the team.

Nevertheless, with the arrivals of Brazilian Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappe this past summer his position has been under severe threat.

As per the Star, the Gunners almost saw Alexis Sanchez join Manchester City for £60million in the last summer transfer window, and they would much prefer to see him join a team abroad rather than a direct Premier League rival.
