Liverpool are weighing up a loan move to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Julian Draxler on loan in January, according to reports in France.

L’Equipe, as quoted by the Daily Mail, is reporting the Merseyside outfit are looking to sign the 24-year-old forward to bolster their options in the upcoming transfer window.

The same article states that Draxler could be available to sign after the Germany international fell down the pecking order at the Ligue 1 giants following a big summer of investment at Parc des Princes.

According the same story, Liverpool were interested in signing promising attacker Draxler before his move to French club PSG in the 2017 January transfer window.

One problem for Liverpool FC could be potential interest from their title rivals Arsenal given their long-standing interest in the former Schalke and Wolfsburg forward.

Jurgen Klopp’s ties to German football could prove useful in luring Draxler to Anfield should the 24-year-old decide to call time on his short spell at PSG.

Draxler suffered a blow to his hopes of securing a regular PSG starting spot after the Ligue 1 giants signed Neymar in a world-record £198m deal from Barcelona in the summer.

PSG signed Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe on loan with a view to a permanent deal at the end of the current campaign.
