Arsene Wenger has dismissed speculating linking Alexis Sanchez with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and insists the club won’t sell to ANY club this summer.

Sanchez’s future has been a hot topic for debate all summer as he’s in the final year of his contract and has shown no sign he’s ready to sign an extension at the Emirates.

The Chilean international has been linked with a number of clubs and PSG are the latest to be put forward as potential suitors with the Mirror reporting they are ready to test our resolve with a whopping £70m bid.

The newspaper suggests PSG are confident that will be enough to persuade Arsenal to cash-in as it would not only prevent us from losing Alexis for nothing next summer but it will also stop him joining a rival such as Man City.

Wenger has always maintained that Arsenal will resist all offers for Sanchez but some fans [myself included] feel maybe it’s best we sell if PSG do come calling with a huge offer.

These latest reports also come amid unconfirmed speculation that Sanchez was in Paris yesterday negotiating a potential deal, however, Wenger has dismissed all the reports as nothing more than ‘media imagination’.

Speaking after our pre-season friendly defeat to Chelsea, Wenger also insisted to reporters that we won’t sell Alexis, even to a foreign club.

It’s a tough situation that we’ve put ourselves in but while I can appreciate the merits of keeping Sanchez for the final year of his contract, I do still think it’s best all round if we sell abroad to a club like PSG.

There is no point keeping a player who doesn’t want to be here and he’ll just be ticking down the days until his contract expires before joining City or Chelsea for nothing next summer. That will be 100 times harder to watch than selling him for £70m to PSG now.

We could use that money to buy a replacement such as Lemar and have money left over to put towards a centre-back or central midfielder – both of which are desperately needed this summer.
