The Gunners summer target Julian Draxler has urged Mesut Ozil to ditch Arsenal to join him at Paris Saint-Germain.
With Ozil’s future still in doubt, top clubs are already circling around the playmaker.
Yesterday, reports emerged that Barcelona have made contact with the player’s agent to ascertain the possibility of a summer move while Bayern Munich are also believed to be keeping tabs on the German’s situation.
However, Draxler who was linked with a January move to the Emirates before he opted to join PSG has urged his new club to sign Ozil.
In an interview with beIN sport, the former Wolfsburg man mentioned Ozil as the man he would love to see at the Parc de Princes.
“I’d like to see Mesut Ozil here,” he told beIN, as quoted by the Daily Cannon.
The duo are known best friends and it was suggested before he joined PSG that Arsenal would boost its chances of keeping Ozil if we can lure Draxler to the Emirates. But that didn’t happen as the midfielder chose the riches at PSG.
Whether Wenger was actually interested in Draxler is anyone’s guess but obviously signing the winger would have gone some extent to convince Ozil to pen a new deal with us.
However, I still remain confident we will convince the German to pen a new deal here. It’s only going to be a matter of time.
