Arsenal target Draxler won’t leave Paris Saint-Germain, says Germany boss

The 23-year-old Germany international only moved to PSG in January this year, signing from Bundesliga side Wolfsburg. He enjoyed a good start to life in the French capital, scoring four goals and creating two more in 17 Ligue 1 games last term.

However, with £198m spent on Barcelona’s Neymar and another £167 expected to be spent on the loan-to-buy deal involving Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe, Draxler’s first team opportunities could be limited.

But Low isn’t concerned and told reporters: “I know for a fact that Paris don’t want to sell him,’ Low told reporters. ‘They are convinced of his outstanding qualities.”

He pointed out Draxler’s superb performances in leading his country to the 2017 Confederations Cup title and said his star midfielder will make his mark at PSG.

He said: “He made such a big step forward there,’ he added. ‘I am convinced that he will come out on top at Paris. By now, he’s already playing a big role for us.”

Meanwhile, despite what Low may think or believe, Draxler could still leave PSG this summer, with Arsenal believed to be launching a deadline day bid for the German.

The Gunners have allowed England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to join Premier League rivals Liverpool in a £35m deal and could see Chilean Alexis Sanchez join Manchester City in a deal worth over £50m.

All of that means Arsene Wenger will need to strengthen his midfield and forward options before the transfer window shuts, particularly after the club’s disastrous start to the season.

Arsenal have lost two of the opening three games, including a humiliating 4-0 defeat to Liverpool. And Draxler could be the signing they need to spark a faltering attack into life.

Should Draxler sign for the Gunners, he will join Germany teammates Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Shkodran Mustafi at the Emirates. And he, with Ozil, will be tasked in feeding the strike force of Alexandre Lacazette, Olivier Giroud and (if he remains at the club) Sanchez.
