Liverpool ready to beat Arsenal in race for 23-year-old World Cup winning playmaker

ARSENAL and Liverpool are chasing PSG ace Julian Draxler and could make moves in January.

The Germany winger is keen to leave the French side after the arrival of Neymar this summer.

Draxler has seen his involvement drop with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe arriving at the Parc des Princes for huge fees.

And he wants to quit as soon as possible to get first team football ahead of next summer’s World Cup.

And, according to transfermarketweb, Arsenal and Liverpool are monitoring his situation.

Draxler, 23, has started just two Ligue 1 games this season despite only signing from Wolfsburg in January.

He has already accumulated 37 international caps but knows he needs to play regular football to get into the squad for the Russian World Cup as Germany look to defend their crown from 2014.

Draxler was also linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer as they looked to replace Neymar, and with Ousmane Dembele out for up to four months they could come back into the equation.

His agent Roger Witterman, told Bild in the summer that he wanted to part of the new PSG project: “Draxler will stay and will not be sold this summer.

“Paris is building a group with the best players in the world at every post, and Julian is one of them and he wants to continue to be part of it.”

But it appears he has already changed his mind and will be looking for a new club in January.
