Paris St Germain have signed Wolfsburg midfielder Julian Draxler on a four-and-a-half-year deal.

The fee for the 23-year-old has not been disclosed but it is reported to be in the region of 42 million euros (£35.58million).

Juventus and Arsenal were both linked with Draxler in the summer, with the Bianconeri having been close to signing him when he joined Wolfsburg from Schalke in a club-record deal in 2015.

But Draxler, who had a release clause in his long-term Wolfsburg contract, has instead accepted a deal to join reigning Ligue 1 champions PSG.
