Julian Draxler has slammed rumours linking the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder with a move to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

Excelling in a deeper-lying midfield role at the Ligue 1 Conforama leaders this season, the 24-year-old was quizzed about Bayern by German media ahead of Germany's friendly with France on Tuesday evening.

Draxler said: "I'm not looking to leave PSG this winter or in the summer. I'm in the middle of the club season and I'm focusing on the elevated objectives we have at the club."

Some German media outlets stated Bayern wanted Draxler to replace Franck Ribéry, 34, who is out of contract at the end of the season. Voted player of the tournament at the FIFA Confederations Cup this summer, Draxler added: "It's not an opportune moment for me to think about my short or long-term future. Of course the Bundesliga is still an attractive league."

Draxler joined PSG from Wolfsburg in January 2017 and is contracted through to 2021.
