Liverpool and Arsenal preparing to battle over PSG star forward

Liverpool are set to battle Arsenal for Julian Draxler with the Mirror detailing that the Germany international will become available due to the FFP burden that Paris Saint-Germain currently faces.

The Reds and Gunners could profit from PSG’s need to comply with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules with Neymar’s £198 million move from Barcelona to be followed 12 months on by a £166m deal to turn Kylian Mbappe’s loan into a permanent move.

Arsene Wenger has been a long-standing admirer of the former Schalke and Wolfsburg star, though Jurgen Klopp could take advantage of being a compatriot of Draxler’s to persuade him to move to Anfield.

Under Unai Emery, Draxler has been unable to secure a consistent role in the French capital. t means Draxler could be set for another big-money move with Wolfsburg paying £22m for his services from Schalke before PSG forked out £28m to take him to Ligue 1 from Wolfsburg.
