Lazio have approached Paris Saint-Germain for German forward Julian Draxler.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti have expressed their interest in the 27-year-old German forward, who is unlikely to gain many minutes this season considering the arrival of global superstar Lionel Messi in the French capital.

For this reason, PSG are willing to send away Draxler on loan and even pay half of his salary, a sensational opportunity for Lazio, especially considering that the growth decree would lower the costs even more.
