Germany forward Julian Draxler has joined Paris St-Germain from Wolfsburg on a four-and-a-half-year contract.

The French champions confirmed the signing on Tuesday after the two clubs agreed a deal on 24 December for a reported 42m euros (£35.5m).

Draxler, 23, started his career at Schalke and was part of Germany's 2014 World Cup-winning team.

"I will do everything to help PSG win new trophies and continue to grow internationally," he said.

"I'm going to discover a new country, a new league, and I'm very proud to take this new step at a club which has become a benchmark in Europe and has signed a lot of great players in recent years."

Draxler, who moved to Wolfsburg in 2015, was said to be a target for Arsenal.
