Germany international Julian Draxler has revealed that he spoke to Mesut Ozil and advised him to join PSG, reports suggest.
Ozil could leave Arsenal in the summer as he has one year left on his contract and it is unclear whether the club will meet his demands of double his current salary of 130,000 a week.
Draxler, who joined PSG last summer, reveals that he would relish the prospect of playing alongside his friend for both country and club.
“Yeah, I would like to see my friend here, Mesut Ozil, because his Arsenal contract is nearly over.” Draxler said. “I think he has one more year. I think he is a great player and I enjoy playing with him in the national team and i would love to play with him at PSG.
“Yeah, we speak in a way like friends are talking and I say to him ‘come to PSG’. He is laughing and he said to me last summer ‘come to Arsenal’. It is just like this.
“I do not know what he is planning, what his plans are but as I said, I would love to see him here because he is a great player and even greater guy.”
Ozil has been under fire in recent months for his seemingly lazy style of playing despite having 11 goals and 10 assists this season.
Time is running out for Arsenal to put an acceptable offer on the table and if negotiations fail, they will look to sell their star man in this summer as they risk losing him for free in 2018.
