Draxler has no future in the French capital after their world-record swoop for Neymar.

And Bayern believe the versatile former Wolfsburg star, 23, represents a bargain in today’s market.

Carlo Ancelotti is keen to keep strengthening his squad as he aims to bring European success to Bayern.

His side were knocked out by eventual winners Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals last season in a comfortable 6-3 aggregate win.

Prem rivals Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea have been linked with highly-rated Draxler.

The Germany international scored a respectable 10 goals in 25 games since joining PSG in January.

But Neymar’s arrival was always going to have a ripple affect and Draxler is one of the first casualties.

The Brazilian superstar has already set about justifying his £198m fee with three goals and assists in just two matches.

His arrival has already seen Lyon president Jean-Michael Aulas concede the title.
