The World Cup winner is said to be a long-time target of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who might yet have the unenviable task of replacing linked-away Alexis Sanchez.
But Tottenham could do with an attacker of Draxler's ilk, with the former Schalke star netting four times in 12 Ligue 1 starts for the Parisien giants last season.
The Daily Mail reported this week that Spurs' move for Everton ace Barkley could be off as the midfielder faces three months on the sidelines.
And fans of the Lilywhites would much prefer Mauricio Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy to make a move for Draxler instead.
I know his wages could be a huge stumbling block but would love to see Tottenham go after Julian Draxler— Mike Pellegrini (@MIKE_CAVS_UK) August 18, 2017
Draxler is million times better— COYS (@nural72) August 18, 2017
Draxler could fit in well at tottenham i feel . Draxler alli and eriksen behind kane would be some attack— sharath srambikkal (@ssrambikkal) August 18, 2017
Draxler is the type of player who the locker room will all know would make them better. Don;t think paying him 100k would unsettle the lads.— Aaron Pitters (@aaronpitters) August 17, 2017
Draxler has been told he's surplus at PSG. Can we afford him? Better than Barkley?— Phil (@Tottenham70) August 18, 2017
Definitely we should! Would better option to Barkley in my opinion!— Leon Thomas (@leonmt17) August 18, 2017
Draxler to arsenal/ tottenham would be a sick move— $lim (@L_Speakman1) August 17, 2017
L'Equipe also reported Arsenal's interest in Draxler, who joined les Parisiens from Wolfsburg last summer, but his representative Roger Wittmann told Sport 1 in Germany that he has heard nothing about his client potentially leaving the French capital.
He said: "We are not interested in whether L'Equipe wrote something. There has been no change, it is not a topic.
"If somebody writes 'I have this information from Nasser Al-Khelaifi [PSG chairman and CEO],' then I will consider it and call the president to speak about Julian's situation.
"Once again, though, this is not the case. So, everything has been said."
