Arsenal to offer Draxler escape route from Wolfsburg hellPublished December 05, 2016
Julian Draxler is planning a January exit from Wolsburg, with Arsenal at the front of the queue for the exciting German’s signature, according to reports this morning.
A long-standing player of interest for the Gunners in light of his excellent performances for club and country in recent seasons, the gifted attacking midfielder is currently out of favour with the Bundesliga outfit and is believed to be keen on quitting the Volkswagen Arena during the coming window.
Despite being one the best talents in his position in Europe, the 23-year-old has seen his relationship sour with Die Wolfe’s supporters and was roundly booed during the 3-2 home defeat to Hertha Berlin over the weekend.
Asked about the incident after the match, Draxler expressed his disappointment: “I don’t think I need to tell anybody what [being booed] does to a person – it certainly doesn’t help you.
“There’s no doubt it makes it hard for you to perform on the field.
“I can understand the fans, though. They have every right to do that. I said in the summer the way I feel and I stand by that.”
And the Daily Mail claims that the sobering ordeal has made Draxler reassess his future in Germany, with Arsenal favourites for his signature in a big-money January transfer.
Arsene Wenger’s men expressed an interest in the £60 million-rated star over the summer, along with fellow Premier League side Everton, and will purportedly seek to offer him a route out of Wolfsburg in January.
The Bundesliga outfit, for their part, have insisted that the German international will not be sold midway through the season, however, it remains to be seen if they’ll be able to keep hold of Draxler if he agitates for a move.
Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on the player, who has 8 goals and 8 assists in 43 games for Wolfsburg.
