Reliable journalist: Euro giants confident of signing Arsenal senior man after reported bust-up
By Matt Farr
Paris Saint-German are ever-more-confident in their bid to lure Alexis Sanchez away from Arsenal this summer, according to a reliable journalist.
Sky Sports journalist Kavel Solhekol claimed on his personal Twitter account on Sunday that the confidence was growing in the French capital over a potential move for the Arsenal star.
Growing confidence in Paris that PSG will sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in the summer

Sanchez, 28, has grown increasingly dissatisfied with life in north London this season, and it has been reported that the Chile international has had ‘blazing rows’ with manager Arsene Wenger.
It is also believed that many players within the Arsenal camp are frustrated with the striker’s selfish attitude, a bust-up that is likely to spell the end of his time at the Emirates this summer.
PSG have been long-term admirers of Sanchez, and will be looking to capitalise on the growing uncertainty over his future at the Emirates, and will look to end his suffering at the end of the season.

Sanchez has just over a year left to run on his current deal, but the chances of him committing his future to the club have taken a dramatic tumble.
He joined Arsenal from Barcelona in a £31.7million deal in the summer of 2014, and has since become the club’s best and most consistent performer.
During his three years with the club, Sanchez has contributed 62 goals and 40 assists from 128 appearances.
Football Insider verdict
Arsenal should be doing everything in their power to keep Sanchez at the club, but it does not look promising. The fall-out with the manager and the players, the failure by the club to meet his contract demands, coupled with a potential finish outside the Premier League’s top four, practically spells out a summer exit. Wenger made the shock decision to omit Sanchez from his starting line-up to face Liverpool on Saturday, a decision which cost them dearly as they fell to a 3-1 defeat. The decision did not sit well with Sanchez, and while Wenger is believed to have had his reasons, the relationship between the pair took a significant blow. PSG are very willing to take him offer their hands, but Arsenal must only consider letting him move to France if the finances are right. They will be handing over yet another of their key players, a worrying trend that has gone on for years.
