PSG 'on brink of Draxler agreement' as Arsenal miss out

Reports in France suggest Paris Saint-Germain are close to agreeing a four-and-a-half year deal with Wolfsburg forward Julian Draxler.

RMC reports that Draxler has agreed to join the reigning French champions, ending any talk of a possible move to long-term suitors Arsenal.

PSG could push the deal through when the transfer window opens in January with a transfer fee of around £30-£40m being discussed for the Germany international.

Draxler’s position at Wolfsburg has effectively been made untenable after he fell out with the club’s hierarchy in the summer, a problem which has gone unresolved.

The 23-year-old has not scored in the Bundesliga this season, but has two assists in his past two games.

The signing of the playmaker could help reinvigorate PSG, who have struggled under new manager Unai Emery this season.

Blaise Matuidi has been playing on the left of the attack, but Draxler could offer a different threat.
