RUMOURS: PSG leading Arsenal in Draxler chase

Juventus are also in the hunt for the Germany international, who is wanted at Parc des Princes due to his versatility

Paris Saint-Germain are in pole position to sign Julian Draxler from Wolfsburg, according to Le Parisien.

The Ligue 1 champions face competition from Arsenal and Juventus for the Germany international, who has failed to integrate into the squad of the Bundesliga outfit, despite a €35 million move in the summer of 2014.

PSG are aiming to expand their attacking options and could allow Jese to leave for Roma after a poor start to his spell in France, and they believe that the 23-year-old’s versatility would be a major boon to them. 

Unai Emery’s side made contact with the German in the summer, and it has not been broken since. Even if PSG’s priority is to sign a striker to supplement Edinson Cavani, it seems this deal is well advanced. 

A €30m fee is expected – less than half of Draxler’s valuation of €70m a year ago.
