If reports in the German media are to be believed, Arsenal may be very close to signing Julian Draxler, days after Wenger heaped praised on the high rated former Schalk 04 player. According to reports in the German media, Arsenal are ready to pay Wolfsburg his club the £30m they are demanding for the player and a deal could be announced just immediately after the European Championship.
This won’t be the first time Draxler is been linked with a move to Arsenal. He was linked with a move to Arsenal just before we signed Mesut ozil, he was also linked with us the January preceding the summer he moved to Wolfsburg. Although Wolfsburg have recently confirmed they will not be selling the player for any amount, reports from Germany claim Wenger is confident of getting a deal done.
The German who only about two hours ago scored for Germany in the match against Slovakia will be a quality addition to the current Arsenal team especially as he can play on both wings, in the 10 role and as a false nine.
Arsenal will however have competition for the player in Manchester United who have also been linked with his signing. However, if the Red devils manage to get Mkhitarya, which is looking likely, then we could be free to sign Draxlern as United will certainly won’t be needing both players.
