Euro Paper Talk: Frustrated PSG star sends €50m SOS to Liverpool, Arsenal

Date published: Monday 22nd April 2019 12:36

Liverpool and Arsenal are the preferred destinations for a frustrated PSG star, while Manchester United have made a big-money offer for a Bayern Munich defender, according to Monday’s European papers.



Julian Draxler is looking to quit PSG this summer – and reportedly hopes to resurrect his career in the Premier League.

That’s according to Don Balon, who claim the Germany international is growing increasingly frustrated by his lack of regular action at the Parc des Princes and is now seeking a new challenge this summer.

And Draxler, who is rated in the €50m bracket by the Ligue 1 giants, has reportedly asked his agent to secure him a move to the Premier League, with his previous suitors, Liverpool and Arsenal, both in his sights.

The Spanish outlet claims Draxler fancies a move to either Premier League side, where he could prove to be man Jurgen Klopp has missed since Philippe Coutinho’s sale to Barcelona last year, or indeed, as a replacement for compatriot Mesut Ozil, who looks set to move on from Arsenal this summer

The report claims Draxler, however, is also open to a move back to the Bundesliga, with both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund both mentioned as suitors for the 25-year-old.

Draxler joined PSG from Wolfsburg in January 2017, having started his career at Schalke. He has 49 caps and six goals for the Germany national side.
