​Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has set his sights on Wolfsburg winger and PSG target Julian Draxler this January, according to ​reports from ​The Times.


The talented 23-year-old looks likely to leave Wolfsburg in the upcoming transfer-window following a poor start to the season.

Draxler had a transfer request rejected in the summer, but now with Wolfsburg sitting perilously in the bottom half of the Bundesliga, it's widely expected that he will depart over the next month.


​It was reported this week that French giants Paris Saint Germain had agreed a £33.6m deal that would see Draxler join up with the Ligue 1 club, but now Liverpool are planning to rival the Parisians for his signature.


The player himself spoke out about transfer talk after his side's 2-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday, claiming that he was in talks with a number of clubs.

"I am in talks with a couple of clubs, but so far no decision has been made," Draxler told Bild, as quoted by ​Metro.


"We will all sit down and make a sensible decision that is suitable for us."


One of those clubs are presumably Liverpool, who are managed by Bundesliga expert Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds boss had previously been interested in Dortmund starlet Christian Pulisic, but his former club seem unwilling to sell, causing his interest to switch to the outgoing Julian Draxler.


They will also face stiff competition from Arsenal, who have held the winger as a longstanding transfer target.


"Nothing is done," confirmed a member of the player's entourage to Le Parisien. "Julian is hesitating between PSG and Arsenal. For the moment, he is thinking.


"A decision will be made in the coming days. One thing is certain, he has played his last match for Wolfsburg."
