Though, Coach Arsene Wenger has insisted that the Chile international will not be sold but according to Le Parisien, Paris Saint-Germain’s sporting director Antero Henrique has travelled to London in the hope of trying to negotiate a deal.

A figure of £50m has previously been suggested for the attacker, but Arsenal will likely demand more from both PSG and Manchester City due to the money they are willing to spend ahead of next season.

PSG have been linked with a world-record transfer swoop for Barcelona’s Neymar, while City have loosened the purse-strings to strengthen in goal, at full-back and in midfield.
