Arsenal could be poised to land German winger Julian Draxler in the New Year with reports indicating French giants Paris Saint-Germain are interested in a swap deal involving the Gunners’ long term target and Alexis Sanchez.
The Paris club who are known to hold very serious interest in the Chilean winger were credited with an interest in the player during last summer’s transfer window but cooled efforts to sign him after making Neymar and Kylian Mbappe the two most expensive players in the world in an astonishing window.
It is the arrival of the duo that has pushed Draxler out of the first team picture at the Parc des Princes. Despite impressing in the second half of last season following his £35million January move from Germany, the German international who is known to be unhappy with life as substitute this campaign is interested in a move away in search for more regular game time.
Recent reports have disclosed that PSG fancy the idea of using Draxler in an exchange deal for the much coveted Sanchez.
According to the Daily Star via Daily Cannon, PSG would be willing to swap long-time Arsenal target Julian Draxler to get Alexis when the winter transfer window opens in January.
Though swap deals, especially of this magnitude, are complicated and difficult to pull through in reality, all four parties involved in this one are expected to be interested come January.
Draxler who has designs on making the German squad for next summer’s World Cup is keen on a move away from PSG. The French club who have ambitions of winning the Champions League, a dream Sanchez has talked about, are desperate to add Alexis to their already impressive frontline.
The Gunners who do not currently have the lure of Champions League football do not just get the opportunity to sign a fantastic player in the process but also to a chance to put all of the Sanchez saga behind them once and for all.
