Zenit ‘working intensively’ to sign Julian Draxler from PSG

Zenit Saint Petersburg are trying to sign Julian Draxler from Paris Saint-Germain, according to Sky Sport.

The Russian champions have held talks about acquiring 27-year-old Draxler, who PSG are reportedly open to selling.

But their efforts, described as ‘intensive’, appear to be in vain with Draxler continuing to insist on a Paris stay.

Draxler has been linked with Hertha and Leeds this summer, but is in no hurry to leave the French capital.

The former Schalke star is out of contract next June and can negotiate a move to another club from January.

A World Cup winner with Germany, Draxler joined PSG from Wolfsburg three years ago for a sum of €42m.

Although he was in the starting eleven for just seven Ligue 1 games last season, Draxler has started PSG’s last two games against Metz and Nice.
