Odds update: Bookies make Liverpool favourites to sign PSG’s World Cup winner

Popular bookmakers SkyBET have installed the Reds as the surprise favourites in the race to sign PSG winger Julian Draxler.

The Germany international only moved to the Parc des Princes in January of this year, but Neymar’s big-money move to the Parisian giants has shrouded his future in doubt.

Other world class names including Alexis Sanchez and Kylian Mbappe have been linked with a move to PSG, and if any of those transfers materialise, it is hard to envisage a place for Draxler in Unai Emery’s team.

And SkyBET believe he could very well be plying his trade away from the French capital this season, installing Liverpool as the 8/1 favourites in the race to obtain his signature, ahead of Barcelona and Arsenal at 9/1.

Jürgen Klopp might very well be forced into signing a top tier winger over the course of the next few weeks, with Philippe Coutinho’s future at Anfield far from certain, and the 23-year-old German would be an ideal replacement for the Brazilian, should he eventually leave Liverpool.

And with the Neymar domino effect now well under way, it would be no surprise to see Draxler plying his trade on Merseyside this season.
