Any hopes Arsenal had of landing Julian Draxler before Thursday’s transfer deadline appear to be over.
There have been suggestions in France that the Gunners would make a move to land the German star as they look to bolster their squad following back to back Premier League defeats.
Draxler only moved to the French capital in January from Wolfsburg and he enjoyed a fine start to life with the Ligue 1 giants, producing several fine performances during the 2016/17 run-in.
But the arrival of Neymar in a world record £200 million deal, combined with the imminent capture of Kylian Mbappe, has reportedly led to Draxler being viewed as surplus to requirements at the Parc des Princes.
Germany coach Joachim Low has hit back at those rumours, however, while speaking to reporters at the Germany training base and insists he forward will be going nowhere.
Low said: “I know for a fact that Paris don’t want to sell him. They are convinced of his outstanding qualities.”
Draxler is currently alongside Mesut Ozil with the German national team. It is the first time they have met up since the Confederations Cup triumph in the summer.
Draxler was captain during that tournament and Low believes the competition was a big one for the PSG forward.
“He made such a big step forward there,” Low said. “I am convinced that he will come out on top at Paris. By now, he’s already playing a big role for us.”
