Since Leeds United were promoted back to the Premier League, they have been linked with a number of big names, some more believable than others.
Edinson Cavani and Leon Bailey are but two of many, and it appears Andrea Radrizzani is working hard to give Marcelo Bielsa all the tools needed to succeed in the top-tier.
The latest player to be approached, according to RMC Sport’s Mohamed Bouhafsi, is Paris Saint-Germain’s Julian Draxler.
The journalist took to Twitter to explain Leeds ‘have contacted’ the Germany international ‘to convince him to join the English side’.
#Leeds a contacté Julian #Draxler pour le convaincre de rejoindre le club anglais. #Draxler ne s’est pas montré, jusqu’à maintenant, réceptif à l’intérêt des Peacoks. A un an de la fin de contrat, l’allemand ne souhaite pas quitter la capitale française. Cc @Tanziloic

However, Draxler ‘has, so far, not been receptive’ to the advances from the Elland Road club.
With just one year left on his contract with the Ligue 1 champions, the midfielder is said ‘to not want to leave the French capital’.
There’s still time to convince him, and perhaps the arrival of another big name to go alongside Rodrigo could be what’s needed to change Draxler’s mind and make him keener on the project being put in place in Yorkshire.
