Sead Kolasinac fuels speculation Julian Draxler could move to Arsenal after posing with the PSG striker
Sead Kolasinac was in high spirits with Arsenal target Julian Draxler in London on Thursday to fuel speculation surrounding his future at Paris Saint-Germain.
The Gunners have been regularly linked with a move to sign the Germany international since his emergence as a promising Bundesliga player at Wolfsburg.
Draxler moved to Schalke 04 in 2015 and spent 18 months in Gelsenkirchen before a move to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in the 2017 January transfer window.
However, the 24-year-old has since found his first-team opportunities limited at Parc des Princes after the arrival of Brazilian forward Neymar in a world-record £198m deal from Barcelona in the summer.
PSG recruited France international Kylian Mbappe in a loan deal from defending Ligue 1 champions AS Monaco to provide further competition for a starting spot in Unai Emery’s XI.
Given the uncertainty surrounding the future of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in the current transfer window, Draxler could be a good candidate to fill the attacking void at Arsenal.
Kolasinac posted the above photo with his former Schalke 04 team-mate on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:
“@nba Time with @draxlerofficial #SeoKol #jdx”
Arsenal signed France international Alexandre Lacazette in a £52m deal from Ligue 1 side Lyon in the summer transfer window.
The Gunners finished in fifth place in the Premier League last term.
