Lazio in for Draxler?

Lazio are being linked with Paris Saint-Germain attacker Julian Draxler, who seems set to leave the French champions.

Il Corriere dello Sport claims Lazio, who are on the verge of closing a deal with Wesley Hoedt for the defence, could make a move for PSG winger Draxler this week.

The newspaper reports PSG have also offered the player to Inter, Milan and Rome, as they ask for €15m in return.

But the real obstacle for Lazio will be the German’s salary in Paris, where he makes €7m a season.

Draxler would have to take a significant pay cut to complete a move to the Olimpico, but his contract with Les Parisiens expires in June 2021 and he is not in coach Thomas Tuchel’s plans.

The report claims the former Schalke star has already turned down moves to Leeds United, Bayer Leverkusen and Hertha Berlin, and could be tempted by Champions League football at Lazio.
