Arsene Wenger wants Jurgen Klopp’s top transfer target to replace Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal are targeting Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic as a potential replacement for Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.

The Sun claims that Arsene Wenger has Pulisic and Marco Reus on his radar as he considers replacements for Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

Both Sanchez and Ozil are still in talks over new contracts, with their current deals set to expire in 2018.

And Wenger has reportedly been given no guarantee that his two key players will extend their stays at the Emirates Stadium.

Pulisic was wanted by Liverpool in the summer transfer window but Jurgen Klopp failed with an £11 million offer for the 18-year-old.

Last month, reports claimed that Liverpool were ready to reignite their interest in the January transfer window.

Yet it’s easy to believe Dortmund will do all they can to keep one of their brightest young stars in the fold. In fact, the club’s director of football, Michael Zorc, has previously indicated Dortmund’s intention to resist offers for talented youngster: “We would like to have him here and develop him here. We did not educate him to sell him.”

The American attacker has also indicated he’s not thinking about a move away.

Pulisic made his feelings known during a live chat on U.S. Soccer’s Facebook page: “But right now, I’m with Dortmund and very happy. I’m earning my spot and working hard for that team.”
