Alexis Sanchez is top PSG target despite Arsene Wenger's 'not for sale' stance

 


It is understood PSG want a marquee signing before the transfer window shuts, and Arsenal's Chile forward Sanchez tops their list.

Sanchez is inside the final year of his contract and told Chilean media at the weekend he wants Champions League football - something Arsenal cannot provide next season.

But the forward also acknowledged his future depends on the Gunners, and Wenger, speaking from the club's tour of China on Tuesday, said: "The decision is not to sell."

Asked about Sanchez's desire to play in the Champions League he said: "I don't give too much importance to things that are translated, you know. The whole interview that I got didn't really mean that.

"The main focus for us is to concentrate on the Premier League and the Premier League for me today is more important than the Champions League.

"We played 20 years in the Champions League, that's 17 years before Sanchez arrived and three years with him, so he can get us back in there."

PSG have a transfer budget of more than £200m this summer and also retain an interest in Neymar, who is believed to have a £195m release clause at Barcelona.
