Report: PSG Proposed a Swap Deal to Juventus Involving Draxler and De Sciglio

Paris Saint-Germain recently contacted Juventus to propose a swap deal involving midfielder Julian Draxler and defender Mattia De Sciglio, according to a report from CalcioMercato.it (via Le10Sport).

PSG is now seeking a left-back to replace Juan Bernat, who recently suffered a serious ACL injury. Les Parisiens turned its attention to Juventus’ De Sciglio as a possible replacement and the club decided to offer the Italian side Draxler in a straightforward player-for-player swap deal. The report mentions that the reigning Serie A champions would like to add a midfielder over the current transfer window. However, Juventus does not eye Draxler as a priority for the club.

The report concludes by mentioning that while Juventus is open to offloading De Sciglio, the club would much prefer a transfer deal instead.

PSG has been seeking to find a suitor for Draxler, so this deal would have checked off two of the club’s priorities over the current transfer window. It is unclear whether PSG plans to give in to Juventus’ demands of a transfer deal for De Sciglio. He currently has two more years left on his contract, so PSG could seek to make him a permanent replacement to Bernat in the depth chart. Bernat will be a free agent next year and there have been no reports alluding that the two sides are close to agreeing on a contract extension deal.
