Sead Kolasinac and Shkodran Mustafi have joked that they were trying to lure Julian Draxler to sign for Arsenal after the trio were spotted at the NBA event in London.

Draxler has been excellent since joining Paris Saint-Germain in the last January transfer window from Wolfsburg. However, with the summer arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr, who together make a brilliant attacking trio along with Edinson Cavani, Draxler has found it hard to get minutes.

He was at the NBA game of the Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics at the O2 Arena, along with London residents Kolasinac and Mustafi, both of whom he has played with during his career.

Arsenal mark Arsene Wenger's big day with win at Crystal Palace

  Arsenal mark Arsene Wenger's big day with win at Crystal Palace Arsenal marked Arsene Wenger's record-equalling match as a Premier League manager by winning 3-2 at Crystal Palace. At a time when there are still doubts about Wenger's abilities despite his remarkable longevity - in overseeing his 810th Premier League fixture the Frenchman equalled the record of Sir Alex Ferguson - his team displayed so many of the traits he inspires.They often outplayed their hosts, securing victory when a finish from Shkodran Mustafi and two goals from Alexis Sanchez ensured they remain sixth and continue their push for the top four, but were also frequently stretched.

Paris Saint-Germain's Julian Draxler had to play it cool as Sead Kolasinac and Shkodran Mustafi tried to lure him to Arsenal on Thursday. Asked if he wanted Draxler to join him at Emirates Stadium, Mustafi joked : "That's the reason why he came here."

Speaking about the three seeing each other in the capital, Mustafi jokingly said, via Goal:

“That’s (signing for Arsenal) the reason why he came here.”

Kolasinac then added:

“Julian is a very good friend of mine and a good football player.”

“Nevertheless, he has to decide on his own where his way will go to. Maybe he stays in Paris, maybe not. He has to decide that on his own. Then we’ll see what’s going to happen.”

When quizzed about being in London, Draxler said the trip was purely to see his friends.

“Yes, but mostly because of my best friend Sead and of course because of my [Germany] team-mate Musti [Mustafi].”

Chelsea vs Arsenal: Last Time Out .
The most recent meeting between the two at Stamford Bridge came earlier in the season in September when the sides played out an exciting 0-0 draw. Both sides came into the game in similar positions as they both sat just inside the top four prior to the game at the Bridge. Chelsea have had the upper hand over the Gunners at home in recent years but failed to claim a victory on this occasion on what was a tight encounter. The Gunners lined up strongly but couldn’t claim an away victory against their London rivals. It was a fixture which the Gunners had the better of the chances in and should have really of made their dominance pay to claim a rare victory away from home against the Blues despite some key players not starting the match. The game became quite a nasty one in the second-half as the Gunners picked up three bookings, Mohamed Elneny, Héctor Bellerin, Sead Kolašinac whilst Alvaro Morata was booked for the Blues and David Luiz was dismissed after picking up two stupid yellow cards on a disappointing afternoon for the hosts. Whilst, the type of competition is different Arsenal will need to really be at their best if they are to claim anything to take back with them to the Emirates for the second leg in a couple of weeks.
