PSG midfielder linked with Tottenham replies to transfer talk
Julian Draxler responds to talk of a possible move away from Paris Saint-Germain this summer
Julian Draxler has poured cold water on talk of a move to the Premier League after having been linked with a switch to Tottenham Hotspur.
Reports in the media in recent days have suggested that Tottenham have been offered the chance to sign the Germany international from Paris Saint-Germain this summer as Spurs set about bolstering their squad.
According to Metro, PSG are looking to offload Draxler this summer and Tottenham have been touted as a possible destination for the attacking midfielder.
However, the player himself has now appeared to distance himself from those rumours by insisting that he has heard nothing about a potential move away from Parc des Princes this summer.
Draxler told German newspaper Bild when asked about a possible move to the Premier League: “I cannot say anything about that, because I have no intention of leaving the club.
“I also heard nothing from club side. I have not talked to anyone, I know nothing.”
Draxler scored three goals and made seven assists in 31 Ligue 1 games for PSG last season. He also made one assist in seven Champions League outings for the French side.
Tottenham are likely to be linked with a whole host of players this summer as Mauricio Pochettino looks to bolster his squad ahead of next term.
Spurs finished fourth in the Premier League and as runners-up in the Champions League after they lost to Liverpool FC in the final.
