In the wake of this week, Germany international and Paris Saint Germain forward Julian Draxler became the most sought after footballer and the agent of the star has admitted that they would listen to offers for the want-away star, according to report.

Draxler has been on the transfer radar of Arsenal for quite some time now but the Gunners failed to match their interest with offer and he decided to join PSG from Wolfsburg in January. Nonetheless, the arrival of Neymar from Barcelona means he has lost his place in the attack of the Parc Des Princes squad.

According to L’Equipe , the manager of PSG Unai Emery has granted the attacker the permission to sort out his future but his agent Roger Wittmann had dismissed the report, claiming that he would stay put at the club and fight for his place.

“We do not care if L’Equipe writes something, there’s no sign of a change,” Wittman said.

Emery would now favour a trio of Edison Cavani, Neymar Junior and Angel Di Maria in attack and this has seen Draxler become the most chased player in the Premier League.

But according to Gambling Times, Arsenal are front runners for his signature. The Gunners have been linked with a move for Thomas Lemar and Riyad Mahrez all season and they may have now turned their attention to Draxler.

“If someone made an offer then I would consider it and would have to contact the president [Nasser Al-Khelaifi],” Wittman added.

Will Draxler be a good signing for Arsenal? Tell me what you think.
