Liverpool and Arsenal are set to go head-to-head for the signature of Paris Saint Germain midfielder Julian Draxler, according to reports.
The German international is seen by many Arsenal fans as one of the few players that can replace Alexis Sanchez, who is being linked with an exit.
Arsenal themselves, are big admirers of Draxler, having monitored him since his days at Schalke 04, but our need to sign him has never been this strong.
Having signed Neymar for around €220m last summer, PSG may have to let one of their first team players leave in the new year in order to comply with the financial fair play rules.
And according to the Mirror via the Metro, the French club has decided that it is Draxler who would have to leave the club in the new year.
Liverpool and Arsenal have been alerted by the situation at Paris and are ready to battle for Draxler.
Arsenal remain big admirers of the former Wolfsburg man and will definitely relish the opportunity to sign him, especially now that we are scouring the market for Sanchez’s replacement. The Germany international is one of the best young wingers you can find around and will be a great signing for us.
Although his goalscoring threat is nothing compared to Sanchez, his playmaking ability will make him a decent replacement. For now, we’ll just have to focus on signing him ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
