Ex-Blues defender Alex has urged Brazilian compatriot Lucas Moura to join Arsenal after being left in the cold by PSG.

The 25-year-old has been dislodged by international team-mate Neymar after his world record move from Barcelona in the summer.

Alex told L’Equipe: “I would like to see him [Lucas] at Arsenal. They play cleaner football, more technical.

“He had contacts, I believe. That would be a good option for him this winter.”

Sanchez is in the final year of his Gunners deal and has made it clear he will not be signing a new one.

And PSG are are convinced his friendship with former Barcelona team-mate Neymar will help them seal a free transfer next summer.

That could put Edinson Cavani’s future in doubt, particularly after the Uruguayan clashed with his new team-mate over penalty duties last month.

The Parisians’ hopes of adding Sanchez to their ranks went on the back burner when they took Kylian Mbappe on loan with a guaranteed £162m transfer fee next year.

But now PSG believe they can get around Financial Fair Play by selling Cavani and bringing in Sanchez for nothing.
