Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Julian Draxler has insisted he has no intention of leaving the French capital, dismissing rumours linking him with a move away from Ligue 1.

The 24-year-old only joined PSG in January last year but he is thought to be among the players who could depart the Parc des Princes either this winter or at the end of the campaign, as PSG look to comply with Financial Fairplay Regulations.

The Parisians have already spent a world record £198m on Neymar and have committed to buying Kylian Mbappe for £166m from Monaco next summer, after signing him on a season-long loan; meaning they could be forced to sell some of their players to recoup part of the fees.

The German, who was the Golden Ball winner at the Confederations Cup in the summer, has played 717 minutes across 14 games so far this season but insisted he is determined to fight for more opportunities in Paris.

"I am not thinking about leaving the club in winter or even in the summer," he was quoted as saying by the Mirror. "I am right in the middle of the season with PSG and solely concentrating on our big targets. Now is not the relevant time to think about my immediate or near future."

Draxler, who cost PSG £40m, was touted around Europe in the summer and Arsenal were linked with a move on deadline day for the Germany international, as they prepared to cash in on Alexis Sanchez.

However, the Chilean's proposed move to Manchester City collapsed and Draxler subsequently admitted he never considered Arsenal, as he instead pined for a move to Barcelona up until the twilight of the summer transfer window in the hope the club would abandon attempts to sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool.

Manager Unai Emery eventually pulled the plug on Draxler's departure in the belief he could play a role for the club domestically and in the Champions League, but it remains to be seen whether he can play enough to retain his place in the Germany squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Draxler is not the only illustrious name to have been linked with a move away from the French capital, as Lucas Moura, Angel Di Maria and Edinson Cavani have all been mentioned among the players who could be offloaded over the next two transfer windows.

The latter's position appeared particularly difficult after he was involved in an on-pitch spat with Neymar earlier in the season, but the Uruguayan has since been in spectacular form, scoring 17 goals in 16 appearances in all competitions.

Di Maria, meanwhile, has only started two of PSG's last 12 games in all competitions, after being named in the starting 11 in the first four games of the campaign and Lucas Moura has played just 71 minutes of football so far.
