Hertha BSC has decided to no longer pursue Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Julian Draxler, according to Sky Sport’s Marc Behrenbeck.
Draxler was in the transfer rumor mill regarding a possible return to the Bundesliga to feature for Hertha Berlin, but this move will not transpire for a number of reasons.
Draxler is reportedly deemed as too expensive for Hertha, as such a possible deal could cost €20 million. Financial implications from PSG are also why no deal will occur. PSG would feel that even if it sold Draxler, it would not have enough funds to set off to subsequently find his successor.
The report concludes by noting that Draxler prefers to stay at PSG. The German midfielder feels comfortable at the club.
Draxler is currently set to become a free agent next summer.
