Julian Draxler will become a Gunner. That’s according to reports from the German media today. The former Schalke 04 player has always been linked with a move to Arsenal but it appears Wenger is now finally ready to put his money where his mouth his and complete the signing of the world class winger.
Reports from Bild claims Arsenal have already agreed personal terms with the player and that the deal will be completed as soon as the European Championship is over, that’s in few days time. From all indication, Arsenal are interested in signing a winger this summer. We have so far been linked with the signing of Mahrez, Mkhitaryan who is now at Manchester United, Gotze, Pjanc and Draxler himself.
Last mont, Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allosfs claimed the club wasn’t interested in selling the player;
“We always say that we listen to everything, that’s expressively does not apply for Andre and Julian.
“We don’t want to sell them, we want to return to the Champions League with them.”
Well, the saying is true, money talks, Bullshit walks. It appears the player’s desire to move to a bigger club and the offer of more money has forced Wolfsburg’s hand, if the reports claiming Draxler will be joining us is true that’s.
The player will cost Arsenal as much as 45 million which is worth it considering his talent and the fact that other lesser quality players have moved for more than that so far this window.
