With Manchester United looking like they have beaten Arsenal to the signing of Borussia Dortmund and Armenia international attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Arsenal may have been given a boost in their bid to sign Julian Draxler who hmself has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho has been linked to midfielders in similar positions and rightly so that is his style of play, the Portugese Coach likes quality options on his bench. He has been linked Armenian International, Henrikh Mkhitaryan as well.
Arsenal would be keeping an eye on the transfer of both Mkhitaryan and Draxler as the Gunners are also interested in both players.
But, Manchester United is likely to get Borussia Dortmund’s Mkhitaryan after the players’ agent revealed that his client would prefer a move to Old Trafford than the Emirates.
With this, Arsenal has a chance to snap up Draxler if Mkhitaryan deal with United goes through. Arsene Wenger has been an admirer of the player since his coaching career in Red Bull and the players’ body language shows he will likely pick a move to the Emirates.
The 27-year-old, told Wolfsburg that he want to leave the club a week ago and at that time Arsenal was the only team in the chase for the services of the German midfielder.
Draxler just moved to the Volkswagen Arena last summer, putting an end to his 14 years stay at Schalke 04 where he advanced through the youth academy before developing as one of Europe’s most blazing players.
With Wolfsburg last season, he manage to score 9 goals and gave 8 assists in 35 appearances and is a piece of the German Euro 2016 squad where he’s began in two out of their three games so far on the way to the last 16.
Draxler would be a magnificent expansion for the Arsenal team as he would blend very well with fellow German International, Mesut Ozil at the middle of the park.
