Bundesliga side Wolfsburg have announced the sale of Julian Draxler to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain for an undisclosed fee.

Goal.com claims that the fee is €35 million up front with a further €10 million in bonuses during his stay at Parc des Princes.

The Germany international had been linked with English clubs including Liverpool and Arsenal but he has signed a four-year deal with the French champions.

“We’ve had some very intense but constructive discussions with Paris Saint-Germain, Julian Draxler and his management over the past few days and we’re confident to have reached a satisfactory conclusion for all parties,” said Olaf Rebbe, Sporting Director.

Head coach Valérien Ismaël commented: “Of course I’m sad to see Julian go, because he’s an outstanding footballer. He gave everything in the recent matches against Frankfurt and Gladbach and once again showed how much this club meant to him. I hope his move to France provides him with a fresh challenge.”

Draxler only joined Wolfsburg from Schalke in the summer of 2015 and made 34 Bundesliga appearances, scoring five goals in his short stay.
