JULIAN DRAXLER

Arsenal are ready to start their chase for Julian Draxler with Paris Saint-Germain looking for a £32million fee, reports The Times.

The Germany international has been told by the Parisians he is free to leave after Neymar’s arrival from Barcelona.

RATING: 7/10

SPORT360 VERDICT

Arsenal are crying out for a winger and Draxler more than fits the Gunners mould.

Dortmund and Inter Milan are also said to be interested but it just seems like the right fit, even though, it’s a little surprising PSG are willing to let the talented 23-year-old depart.

Despite only being in Paris for seven months after signing from Wolfsburg in a £35.5million deal, Draxler has shown signs of recovering his top form after hitting a bit of a lull in his final season in the Bundesliga.

THOMAS LEMAR

Manchester United are ready to switch their attention from Ivan Perisic and try instead to sign Monaco winger Thomas Lemar, according to the Daily Record.

United have so far been frustrated in bids to prize Gareth Bale from Real Madrid while negotiations with Inter Milan for Perisic have gone cold.

RATING: 6/10

SPORT360 VERDICT

Monaco have already rejected overtures from United’s Premier League rivals Arsenal and would likely remain steadfast if Jose Mourinho’s side were to bid as well.

The Portuguese boss is desperate to sign an out-and-out winger, and the left-sided France international would represent an upgrade on his current options but would cost around €60million. If negotiations with Inter have proven tough, Monaco could be even tougher.

SHKODRAN MUSTAFI

Inter Milan have approached Arsenal regarding to the availability of defender Shkodran Mustafi.

The respected GianlucaDiMarzio.com is reporting a season-long loan deal has been mooted with the Serie A giants looking to reinforce their defence having missed out on Man City’s Eliaquim Mangala.

RATING: 5/10

SPORT360 VERDICT

Good luck. Arsenal only signed the Germany international around a year ago for £35million and are unlikely willing to let him depart, especially with Arsene Wenger switching to a back three.
