PSG Set To Make €75m Move For Draxler

According to Germany based media outlet Bild, PSG are set to make a €75m offer for Wolfsburg’s Julian Draxler.

Draxler made his Bundesliga debut for Schalke at the age of 17, in January 2011, and in May of that year, he scored the first goal as Schalke 04 won the DFB-Pokal Final.

In total, he played 171 competitive matches for Schalke, scoring 30 goals.

The 22-year-old joined Wolfsburg only last season, to fill in for the Manchester City bound Kevin de Bruyne.

Draxler created 36 chances last season, assisting 5 times in the Bundesliga. He scored 5 goals, with a shot accuracy of 61%, playing 1514 minutes in 21 games in the league for Wolfsburg.

Earlier this month, Draxler expressed his desire to leave Wolfsburg in an interview.

He said: “I want to leave Wolfsburg, the coach knows for more than three weeks.

“Two days after the semi-final at the European Championships I told him how I see the whole situation and what I want – which is to leave the club. It was always clear between all parties that I would like to go to a top international club if the opportunity arises.”

According to Bild, Draxler’s agent Roger Wittmann has been in Paris for the past few days, negotiating a deal with PSG.

The €75m fee which PSG will be paying is the German midfielder’s buyout fee, which will not be changing until the next summer.
