Paris Saint-Germain could jump Manchester City in the queue to sign Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, according to the Sun.

The Ligue One side were interested in the Chilean international in the summer, but were reportedly put off by the 28 year old’s wage demands.  They may however return to the fray in January when they can hold talks with the player over a free transfer next summer.

Only foreign clubs can talk to soon to be out of contract Premier League players in January, while English teams have to wait until the end of the season. It means City are worried that PSG may come to an agreement before them, with the Sun reporting that a salary in excess of £275,000 a week is being considered, in addition to a sizeable signing on fee.

It may prompt Pep Guardiola’s side to make a bid for Sanchez in January rather than wait until the end of the season. The Daily Mail reported earlier this month that a £20m bid could be considered, but will Arsenal look to cash in on the player mid way through the campaign?
