Man City open Alexis talks

The Ligue 1 club are embarking on a major recruitment drive this summer, as they bid to overhaul their attacking options following their failure to win the domestic title in 2016-17.

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez is a target, but Manchester City are confident of securing his signature ahead of PSG and Bayern Munich , and it is Aubameyang who is closest to securing a move.

The Gabon international, who finished as Bundesliga's top scorer in 2016-17 with 31 goals, has demanded around €10 million-per-season, and has also recently acquired a property in the suburbs of Paris.

Henrique will make the ultimate call on the transfer, however, with the Portuguese to be unveiled this weekend.

PSG will continue to pursue Alexis even if they sign Aubameyang, such is their desire to strengthen their ranks.

The Arsenal star is set to leave the Emirates this summer but wants his future resolved before the Confederations Cup, which starts on June 17 in Russia.

The Gunners are understood to be keen to sell Alexis abroad, instead of allowing him to join City, but it remains to be seen if PSG can complete any sort of deal.
