Along with a variety of other outlets, ESPN are reporting that PSG are showing an increased interest in trying to sign Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window. Depending on the outlet, they’ve also reportedly offered to do an even swap by sending Julian Draxler to Arsenal. Dani Alves true to his Barcelona roots had this to say: “It would be good if he came with us. I will always appreciate him. I want what is best for him wherever he goes.”

Our Take: I honestly don’t care if Drax comes here from PSG in a deal for Sanchez, frankly all the speculation and angling has grown tiresome. Get something done and let’s just be done with it. Though, we’d really be okay of Draxler came this way in a deal for Sanchez.

10 October 2017 – ESPN
ESPN is reporting that Arsenal could be willing to end Arda Turan’s tenure at Barcelona. The sport site reports that Barcelona are willing to listen to suitors for the player and the Gunners are one of the clubs being offered his services.

Our Take: At 30 years old, with little playing time over the last 2 years – this is just the kind of signing we’d make as Özil and Sanchez go out the door. And we don’t mean this in a good way.

10 October 2017 – ESPN
ESPN is also reporting that Arsenal are one of many possible suitors for Frankfurt winger Mijat Gacinovic. In addition to Arsenal, they report that Manchester United and Bayern are also sniffing around the talented winger.

Our Take: Given the speed at which Bayern snap up German talent. He’s likely already secretly wearing his red and white striped kit to bed at nights longing for his time at Allianz.
