Reports in France suggest that Arsenal are one of a number of clubs to open talks with Paris Saint-Germain over the potential loan of Julian Draxler (via Sport Witness).
With the January transfer window opening in less than six weeks, rumours about potential signings are hotting up.
Arsenal are never too far away from the gossip pages in England and it seems that it is the same story across the Channel in France.
French publication, l’Equipe has claimed that the ‘exchanges have been made’ by the Gunners and Paris Saint-Germain over Julian Draxler.
The report claims that Arsenal are interested in signing the German international on a loan deal once the window reopens.

Draxler has somewhat fallen out of favour in Paris of late and has completed the full 90 minutes on just four occasions for his club this season.
Julian Draxler would be a pleasing signing for Arsenal. The German’s style of play would suit the club well and if the only way to make that happen is via an initial loan deal then the Gunners should absolutely look at doing that. Let’s hope there is some truth to these reports.
