Paris Saint-Germain will be snubbing all interest in forward Julian Draxler to ensure the 23-year-old stays in France, says Germany manager Joachim Low, reports Football.London.

Draxler has been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer after reports he was seeking an exit from the Parc des Princes. But Low believes PSG are desperate to keep him and won’t let him leave.

“I know for a fact that Paris don’t want to sell him. They are convinced of his outstanding qualities. He made such a big step forward there. I am convinced that he will come out on top at Paris. By now, he’s already playing a big role for us,” he said.

According to the Mirror, Manchester United and Liverpool have joined Arsenal in the race for Paris Saint-Germain and Germany forward Julian Draxler. The 23-year-old has told the Ligue 1 side he wants to leave this summer and has a host of clubs reportedly interested in his services.

Arsenal have been linked with the forward for some time, although manager Arsene Wenger recently admitted he has a task to trim the playing squad rather than add to it. The Gunners are overstocked, with 33 players competing for 25 first-team spots, so it’s more likely they will be making sales than bringing in more players this summer.

Arsenal have been consistently linked with a move for PSG and Germany attacking midfielder Julian Draxler. However, despite the constant links the attacking midfielder has eluded the Gunners grasp in recent seasons.

Maybe now is the ideal time for the club from north London to make a move for the undoubtedly talented playmaker.

Down the pecking order in Paris

Draxler joined PSG in January from Wolfsburg and enjoyed a decent first half a season in the French capital. He made 17 Ligue One appearances, scoring four times and producing one assist. The playmaker also played twice for PSG in the Champions League and scored against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

In fact, the Star even claims that the Gunners have held talks with the French club about the availability of Moura. The club from the French capital are believed to have stated that Brazilian is currently not for sale.

Moura has hit form this season

Moura has taken awhile to find his feet in European football since his £38million move from Sao Paulo in 2012. He has produced flashes of his ability in previous campaigns, but he has failed to find consistency.

Why Arsenal need to sign a creative attacking player in January 0

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has played down talk of spending big in January, having long suggested the preferred targets are seldom available in the winter window, despite their existing wingers looking bereft of the required quality for a genuine challenge for the Premier League crown.

The Gunners’ title-hopes have taken a big hit following a recent dip in form, and there are some startling statistics from their existing wingers which suggests Wenger desperately needs to bring in a new face. Alexis Sanchez (44) and Mesut Ozil (38) lead the squad charts for chances created, but the chasing pack haven’t even managed half of Ozil’s tally – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (15).

Premier League giants Arsenal continue to be linked with a January move for Wolfsburg midfielder Julian Draxler, according to reports from Italy.

The Gunners have just seen their Premiership title bid falter following back to back defeats to Everton and Manchester City, and they are now in danger of dropping out of the top 4 altogether.
