Paris Saint-Germain slap £40m price tag on Liverpool top transfer target

Arsenal and Liverpool have been told they will need to fork out £40million to secure the transfer of Julian Draxler, reports say.

The Paris Saint-Germain attacker has fallen down the pecking order at his club and is thought to be open to working in the Premier League, with Arsene Wenger and Jurgen Klopp keeping close tabs on him.

Draxler has been a long-standing target of Wenger over the years, with the London club keeping tabs on the German since his Wolfsburg days.

The Mirror claim PSG have sounded out Draxler’s suitors and named their price with the hope Arsenal will bite. PSG are desperate to beat Manchester City to Alexis Sanchez and see January as the ideal time to hijack Pep Guardiola’s move.

Arsenal are thought to be open to offers upwards of £35million and are edging towards cashing in on Sanchez rather than keeping him until the summer and losing him on a free.

On the other hand, Liverpool are considering the German midfielder as the potential replacement of Philippe Coutinho, if the Brazilian maestro completes long-term anticipated move to Barcelona.
