Tottenham Hotspur: Daniel Levy could strike gold with PSG winger Julian Draxler

Tottenham Hotspur: Daniel Levy could strike gold with PSG winger Julian Draxler - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

As Leeds United reportedly contact previous Tottenham target Julian Draxler over a possible move (RMC Sport), chairman Daniel Levy is in danger of missing out on a potential solution to Spurs’ search for a world-class winger, with the World Cup winner looking like a bargain valued at £21.6m by Transfermarkt. 

Sky Sports journalist Fabrizio Romano, speaking to the Last Word on Spurs podcast last week, detailed that the Lilywhites are in search of a wide attacker as well as a centre-back and striker.

Even though Levy may be prioritising the latter position, especially to seek an extra option going forward alongside Harry Kane, Paris-Saint Germain star Draxler could be their answer on the flank.

Targeted by ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino and the club back in 2019, as detailed by L’Équipe via Football.London, the German ace can also play in a central attacking midfield role, potentially solving two key issues for Jose Mourinho.

Able to contribute out wide and through the middle, Draxler could be a star option as well as a would-be answer to the lack of creativity from the middle of the park after Christian Eriksen’s departure.

Coming off the back of a disappointing 2019/20 season, perhaps marred by an early pre-season injury, Draxler struggled to fight his way back into Thomas Tuchel’s plans, potentially lowering his market value.

However, he did manage to start 22 Ligue 1 games in the previous campaign, averaging 1.4 completed dribbles per match – even more than current Spurs winger Erik Lamela (WhoScored).

Draxler also made more key passes in 2018/19 than Eriksen managed in his last season at Spurs, pointing to a viable attacking solution.

Whether or not Levy reignites his interest in the 26-year-old remains to be seen, but he could be quite a coup if Spurs make a serious move for him.
