Arsenal target Julian Draxler more impressive than Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo - Marquinhos


Paris Saint-Germain Marquinhos has made the surprise claim that he finds his teammate Julian Draxler more technically impressive than the three great European stars, Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Draxler has been recently linked as a top transfer target for Arsenal by the Daily Mirror whilst also claiming Liverpool are showing interest in the German as his future at the Parc des Princes looks in some doubt.

Despite impressive since joining the Les Perisiens last season, the Germany international has had to adapt to playing a deeper role this season for the Ligue 1 giants due to the presence of summer signings Neymar and Kylian Mbappe up front.

Still, in a little dig at his fellow teammate, Marquinhos says he actually feels Draxler is the player he’s been wowed by most in his career.

‘I played against the three greats – Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar – but in pure technique Draxler impressed me the most,’ Marquinhos told Lejdd.fr

‘And even if he does not have the speed of the three, he eliminates the opponents on his control, his touch of ball, his intelligence of play.’

This is quite the statement from Marquinhos, and looks to be an encouraging news for Arsenal and Liverpool fans if the report according to the Mirror concerning him are accurate.

Draxler has long been regarded as something for the future, the former Wolfsburg star's career seemed to stall somewhat in the Bundesliga before he left Die Wölfe for PSG.

He looks like he could be a good fit to playing style of the Gunners and his pace will also suit Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool playing style.

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are emerging closer towards the ends of their contracts at the Emirates Stadium, while report from Spanish source Mundo Deportivo continues to link Liverpool's Coutinho to Barcelona.
