Liverpool should make a move for Julian Draxler this summer.
The Sun reported earlier this week that PSG have told Julian Draxler that he “is for sale” and “must find a new club”.
The German World Cup winner (35-international caps) joined PSG in January, but he is said to have fallen out of favour of boss Unai Emery.
Draxler, 23, is a class player, and would be a top signing for any club in the world. With that in mind, Liverpool should make a move for him, and offer Mamadou Sakho in return as a part exchange deal.
The player’s agent, Rodger Wittman has denied reports, saying his client won’t be sold this summer. Wittmann told Sport 1 in Germany that he has heard nothing about Draxler's potential exit from PSG.
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."
He would say that, obviously. But, in reality, Draxler’s position at PSG is more vulnerable following Neymar’s world-record £198million move.
PSG are choc-a-bloc with attacking talents - Lucas Moura, Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria, Goncalo Guedes, Hatem Ben Arfa, Javier Pastore and Giovani Lo Celso – and it doesn’t need any expert to tell you that Draxler would struggle to get regular games at the club.
Liverpool have added Mohamed Salah this summer, but Draxler is of a different class and would take the Reds to a new height. He scores. He creates. He is skilful. He is a game changer.
The Reds should make a move for him if they lose Philippe Coutinho. And they should make a move for the German star even if the Brazilian stays put.
Jurgen Klopp could involve Mamadou Sakho - who is not a part of his manager’s plans - as a part of the deal to sign Draxler. Sakho would be more than willing to return to his former club. The deal suits all parties involved.
