Tottenham blow as £35m-rated playmaker delivers verdict on future

Will Butcher

Julian Draxler has told German newspaper Bild he has no intention of leaving French champions Paris Saint-Germain this summer despite reportedly being offered to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Daily Star claimed last week that PSG had offered the 25-year-old to Spurs, who could be after a player such as Draxler given Christian Eriksen’s comments over his future.

It is believed that PSG are willing to sell the 50-time Germany international for £50million this summer. Bild have added in their piece that German sides Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich are also interested in Draxler.

Bild asked the former Schalke and Wolfsburg attacker if he would be tempted into leaving the French capital this summer, with a move to Spurs or Leverkusen – and Draxler discussed his future in no uncertain terms.

“I can not say anything about that, because I have no intention of leaving the club,” Draxler said, when asked about the rumours surrounding his future and links to Tottenham, Bayern and Leverkusen.

TBR’s view

With Eriksen set to leave, Mauricio Pochettino needs to bring in a replacement capable of filling the shoes left by the former Ajax man. Draxler would be an excellent option, especially at £35million.

The north London club need to bring in a player that can heal the loss of Eriksen. That means a player that will excite fans, one that already has a big reputation in European football.

With 50 Germany caps, 333 senior appearances at Wolfsburg, Schalke and PSG, and a World Cup winners’ medal, Draxler has the reputation required to replace Eriksen.
