Cape Town - Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Julian Draxler say he would love to play with international team-mate Mesut Ozil "every day".

The 23-year-old, who was part of the PSG side that pushed Monaco all the way to the Ligue 1 title this season, joined the club from VfL Wolfsburg at the end of 2016.

With one game to play, the Parisian's will be forced to settle for a runner's-up spot, but Draxler is already thinking ahead to next season.

Speaking to the BBC World Service about his German team-mate, who has just over a year left on his Arsenal contract, said: "I would love to play with him every day.

"For me, he's a great player. I enjoy to play with him for every training, every match with the German national team."

He added: "He would help every team in the world and I think he would enjoy the life here and even to play for PSG."

Draxler was a reported target for a number of Premier League clubs, and explained why he moved to France and not England.

He said: "You know we have been in talks with some clubs in England as well, but this time I decided to make the decision as to what I feel and what I prefer for myself.

"There were some teams that wanted me from the Premier League but it was not like it was very, very close.

"Football is about making decisions and that's what I did. I decided that PSG is the best club for me at the moment

"I chose a great new step in my career because PSG is a really, really great club . They have big goals, they want to reach big things and that's why I want to be part of it.

"I did not - and will not - decide my club just for the money."
