Arsenal could still land German star in January


Arsenal’s chances of landing long-term target Julian Draxler could increase in January, according to reports in Spain.

The 23-year-old German playmaker was heavily linked with a move to the Emirates before joining Paris Saint-Germain in January last year.

But despite impressing for the Ligue 1 giants, the former Wolfsburg man could be shown the door when the January transfer window opens to recoup funds, as well as comply with Financial Fair Play, used to secure both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe this summer.

The Paris club splashed out a whopping £192million on Neymar, and while Mbappe has initially signed on a season-long loan from Monaco, it is believed that PSG have agreed to pay their rivals £128million up front and a further £30million in add-ons.

Both Neymar’s and Mbappe’s arrival to PSG has now put Draxler’s position in the team in Jeopardy and could see him sold in January if a suitable offer is tabled, according to Mundo Deportivo.

With both the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil still in doubt at the Emirates, Arsene Wenger may see long-term target Draxler as a suitable replacement for either Gunner.
