According to an article in the Evening Standard, PSG striker and Ligue 1 Player of the Year Edinson Cavani has said that Alexis would be welcomed in Paris, should he decide to move there this summer.

Sanchez’s future at Arsenal is uncertain as the Chilean forward only has a year remaining on his existing deal. Negotiations have stalled but it has been reported that the Gunners are willing to break their strict wage structure in order to commit both Alexis and Mesut Özil to long-term deals.

A weekly wage of £300,000-a-week has been heavily reported as the approach they intend to make once the current campaign is over, though questions about his level of happiness continue to overshadow match-winning displays in recent weeks.

Arsenal are likely to finish outside the Champions League places for the first time under Wenger and have an FA Cup Final to prepare for against Premier League champions Chelsea in less than a fortnight.

With the title already wrapped up, Antonio Conte can afford to rest key players and Arsenal’s well-documented struggles with regards to serious challenges for silverware is a possible reason for Alexis’ reported unhappiness.

Wenger has repeatedly stressed that Alexis is going nowhere, regardless of whether he signs an extension or not. The fact that PSG are not Arsenal’s direct rivals means they have a better chance – still slim – than the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City to sign him this summer.

When asked Cavani said that Arsenal’s talisman would be welcome along with Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the summer. Cavani told Canal Football Club: “If they come, they are welcome.

“We always hope that new players complete the team with their qualities. As for what the club is missing, I will never tell you. For me, my team-mates are the best.”
