Julian Draxler has urged Mesut Ozil to ditch Arsenal and join him in Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain.
The 27-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates in recent months as he has yet to negotiate a new deal with the Gunners to keep him at the club beyond of the end of next season, and PSG, along with the likes of Manchester United, were rumoured to be keeping tabs on his situation.
Draxler, who was linked with a move to Arsenal in January, completed his transfer to PSG from Wolfsburg last month, and has admitted he would love to see his German teammate Ozil join him at the Paris club.
Draxler told BeIn Sports (via Goal):
‘There is one but I’m afraid it’ll put me in difficulty if I say it. I’d like to see Mesut Ozil here.
‘He can play in any team in the world. So if he wants to come, he will be welcome from my side anyway.’
Ozil has become somewhat of a scapegoat when Arsenal don’t perform or pick up victories due to his uninterested body language during and after the games.
However, contrary to what many may think, the German is an instrumental part of the team and Arsene Wenger would hate to see him leave the club. The Frenchman has previously stated that he is confident that the playmaker will commit his future to the club, but, for now at least, it appears negotiations are at a stalemate.
