Milan looking to loan PSG winger Julian Draxler

AC Milan appear to have a genuine interest in signing Julian Draxler this summer.

According to a report from Calciomercato, AC Milan are looking to loan Paris Saint-Germain winger Julian Draxler.

The Germany international was signed by Paris Saint-Germain in January 2017 from VfL Wolfsburg. The 24-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.

Draxler has played 72 times for Paris Saint-Germain since signing from VfL Wolfsburg, scoring 15 goals and creating 12 assists in that time.

The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Germany.

His record for Germany national football team is also impressive. Draxler has scored six goals in 44 matches for Germany at senior level.

Gennaro Gattuso wants to sign a new winger and Julian Draxler is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.

AC Milan are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.

According to Calciomercato, “The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder moved to Paris midway through the 2016-2017 season in order to win major trophies, but he has struggled to prove that he was worth the €42 million that has been spent on him. The German midfielder can play on the left or indeed as the Number 10, but Milan would need to sort out the Hakan Calhanoglu situation before working out what they’re doing with the German. Either way, the cash-strapped San Siro club can only offer a loan deal, with the right to buy the 24-year-old, who only managed four Ligue 1 goals last season. There’s a further problem for the German international: will PSG even want to let him go? While Draxler isn’t exactly the star in Paris, PSG aren’t known for giving players away just like that.”

Signing the 24-year-old on loan in the summer transfer window would be a masterstroke from AC Milan sporting director Leonardo.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in AC Milan.

How strong that interest is and whether Milan will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
