Tottenham Hotspur fans would love to sign the reported Arsenal target.

With Ross Barkley's prospective move Tottenham Hotspur losing momentum, Spurs fans have identified a new target: Julian Draxler.

The Times have reported that the 23-year-old is surplus to requirements at Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal were plotting a £32 million bid before the month is out.

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.

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."
