Arsenal 'to be offered Julian Draxler by PSG' as part of Matteo Guendouzi transfer

January 27, 2022

ARSENAL could be set to add Julian Draxler to the signing of Martin Odegaard, according to reports in France.

The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder has been touted for a swap deal involving Matteo Guendouzi.



According to L'Equipe, Les Parisiens coach Mauricio Pochettino wants to bring in the Frenchman this month.

A new central midfielder is high on the Argentine's list with his old Tottenham star, Dele Alli, another man linked.

But PSG have long held an interest in Guendouzi too with the 21-year-old, born in the Parisian suburbs, signed to the club as a kid.

Arsenal beat the Ligue 1 side to his signature in 2018 but Mikel Arteta fell out with Guendouzi at the end of last season.

A loan spell at Hertha Berlin has seen the player enjoy a brief revival of form but the German club cannot afford him past the summer.

In addition, the sacking of boss Bruno Labbadia has reportedly lost Guendouzi a key ally in the capital amid dressing room tension.
