Amidst speculation Paris Saint-Germain's Zlatan Ibrahimovic will leave the Parc des Princes on a free transfer this summer when his contract expires, the Ligue 1 champions have begun their search for his replacement.

And it seems they might have found one, in Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez.

This is according to, who claim manager Laurent Blanc is a keen admirer of the Chilean and believes him to be the ideal player to complement Edinson Cavani, who will likely be reinstated as first-choice striker upon Ibrahimovic's departure.

Sanchez's form has somewhat withered this season following his emphatic debut campaign at the Emirates Stadium, with a hamstring injury keeping him out for two months over the Christmas period.

However, 12 goals scored and nine assists made in 34 appearances is a decent return and proof he can still deliver when underperforming.

The 27-year-old is set to undergo contract talks with Arsenal with the view to fend off interest by extending his current deal, which has two years remaining.

It's little wonder why PSG have earmarked him as a potential target this summer given the South American's pace, creativity and outstanding work ethic, all of which coming to the fore since signing for the north Londoners.

Arsenal's rumoured interest in Ibrahimovic could play a part in any deal, the Sweden international also a target of Manchester United's and a host of other European powerhouses.

Wages could prove an issue, though, given the striker's reported demands of £600,000-per-week.
