Julian Draxler is wanted by several clubs around Europe, including Olympique Lyonnais and Hertha BSC, but the German could be used as leverage by Paris Saint-Germain to sign Lucas Paquetá from AC Milan.
According to Milanista NonEvoluto‘s Allessandro Jacobone, via SempreMilan.com, PSG has submitted an offer for Paquetá in the neighborhood of 8 million-plus Draxler.

Despite Draxler being included in the deal, the transfer fee is likely too low for the Rossoneri who paid €35 million last January to sign the Brazilian from Flamengo according to Diario AS. Transfermarkt currently puts Paquetá’s market value at €33 million. Previously, it was reported that PSG wanted around €20 million for Draxler, so a deal that sends the German and €15 million to Milan is more likely to get done.
Jacobone’s reporting also says that Paquetá would sign a four-and-a-half-year contract worth €3.5 million-plus bonuses. According to SempreMilan.com, that is nearly twice what the Brazilian makes in Milan and could lead to Paquetá forcing a deal through in January.
