Alexis Sanchez would be “welcome” to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer should he wish to leave Arsenal, Edinson Cavani has said.

The Chilean’s future at the Emirates remains unclear, with numerous reports suggesting the forward is looking for a transfer away from the club.

As talks over Sanchez’s Arsenal contract continue to stall, a number of European sides, such as Manchester City, Juventus and PSG, are now understood to be monitoring the 28-year-old.

Cavani, who joined PSG in 2013 for £55m, has said Sanchez would be welcomed at the Parc de Princes, alongside Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, should they ever move to the Ligue 1 club.

When asked about Sanchez and Aubameyang, Cavani told Canal Football Club: "If they come, they are welcome.

"We always hope that new players complete the team with their qualities.

"As for what the club is missing, I will never tell you.

"For me, my team-mates are the best."

As talk of Sanchez’s future rumbles on, the forward now faces a fight to prove his fitness for Arsenal’s clash with Sunderland on Tuesday night.

Wenger confirmed on Monday that the forward will undergo a fitness test ahead of the fixture at the Emirates Stadium.

The Frenchman said: "Alexis will have a test today. It didn't look too good but with him you never know - he is so keen. Maybe it was just a kick."

Wenger, though, would not be drawn on his future and said: "I know where you want to lead me and I can't give an indication."
