​Paris Saint-Germain Director of Football Patrick Kluivert has reportedly started work on convincing Arsenal playmaker Alexis Sanchez to join the French champions. 

According to ​Canal Supporters - who are supposedly a reputable source -  the former Dutch international is attempting to persuade the Chilean attacker - who is currently involved in a protracted contract stand-off with the Premier League club - against signing an extension to his current deal. 

It is thought that PSG are aiming to ultimately convince Sanchez to sign in the summer and believe they may be able to acquire his services for a reasonable price, given his contract expires in 2018. 

Speculation over Sanchez's future has been persistent this season after reports claimed the player demanded £200,000-a-week before he signed a new deal. 

That speculation was ramped up considerably following the Gunners' 3-3 draw at Bournemouth, when Sanchez could be seen reacting angrily to his teammates celebrating an equaliser when there was still time to grab a winner. 

However, despite the rumours surrounding Sanchez's future at the Emirates, Arsene Wenger has been unequivocal in saying that the club are working hard to resolve the contractual dispute and keep him at the club.

"It always starts with money, it finishes with money and in between the players want to stay or want to go,’ Wenger told beIN SPORTS.

"When the players want to stay it’s easier to find an agreement. We can certainly find an agreement. You cannot put the club in jeopardy as well for the players.

"I think no matter what happens we’ll try to keep them and we’ll go as high as we can and if we cannot go further, we cannot go further. That’s basically it. That’s the way you have to manage a football club.

“Alexis Sanchez is a committed player who wants to stay. I’m convinced we’ll find an agreement. It has to be in our potential."
