According to a report from Sky Sports Deutschland (via L’Equipe) this afternoon, Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery has informed attacker Julian Draxler that he will need to find a new club.
Draxler, a 23-year-old German international, only arrived at the Parc des Princes from Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg in January of this year.
The technically-gifted attacking midfielder/winger made an immediate impact, netting on his competitive debut in a Coupe de France fixture vs Bastia, before scoring the only goal on his debut in Ligue 1 versus Rennes.
He went on to net 4 times in his first 5 appearances for the capital side, including his PSG Champions League debut versus Barcelona.
Though the remainder of his campaign was not at quite the same level as his red-hot start, Draxler nonetheless looked an excellent addition with a big future at PSG.
On the move?
However, as per the aforementioned report from L’Equipe, Unai Emery seems to have other ideas, with the arrival of Brazilian superstar Neymar in Paris set to prove detrimental to the future prospects of Draxler.
The World Cup winner has yet to feature for PSG in either of their first two Ligue 1 matches this season, with Sky Sports reporting that he ‘has no place at the club.’
If the French giants do indeed decide to put Draxler on the market, which is looking increasingly likely, they will certainly not be short of potential suitors from around Europe, with the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Bayern Munich all known to hold an interest in the German.
