Premier League big boys Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are all ready to try and snatch Julian Draxler from Paris Saint-Germain.
The 23-year-old attacking midfielder has surprisingly been put up for sale by the French giants as they prepare to add Monaco’s £160million wonder kid Kylian Mbappe to their squad just a few weeks after the £198million world record capture of Neymar.
Draxler who only joined PSG in January from Wolfsburg for £40million will be allowed to leave for around £32million - a bargain in today’s crazy transfer market.
His availability and knock down price has quickly alerted Gunners boss Arsene Wenger who has followed the German international’s progress since breaking into Schalke’s side at the age of 17.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is also aware of Draxler’s ability from his days in charge of Borussia Dortmund and tried to sign him in January only to miss out to PSG.
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants to make at least one more signing before the current window closes with his priority being a wide running player.
Mourinho has become frustrated with the lack of progress in trying to bring Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic to Old Trafford and could now switch to Draxler or long time Arsenal target, Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.
But Monaco are holding out for at least £50million for the 21-year-old.
It means that PSG’s sudden and surprising decision to sell Draxler for less than they bought him makes the left footed wide man a more appealing proposition.
Draxler is seen as a future captain of reigning World Cup champions Germany.
He led a young inexperienced German side to victory in this summer’s Confederations Cup in Russia.
