40 Million Rated German Confirms Arsenal Move Likely

Arsenal target Julian Draxler has confirmed he will definitely be interested in moving to Arsenal in the summer if they gunners are still interested in his services. The high rated midfielder was linked to Arsenal in the last summer transfer window but nothing came out of the rumours even though some papers suggested Arsenal actually went as far as bidding 40 million pounds for the player which was rejected by Schalke before Wenger went to get us Mesut Ozil.

Draxler who has been linked with several other clubs ever since, has admitted he will not consider leaving in the winter but will definitely consider leaving next summer should Arsenal still be interested.

“For my club I have the chance to play nearly every game, it is important for me to improve myself,” he said. “I have said every summer I have to look what is the best for me and I will do in the summer again and we will see what happens. “But no way.

I won’t switch then (in January). “I have always said English teams are very big clubs and Arsenal is of course one of them. Of course I sometimes speak to Mesut (Ozil) or Per (Mertesacker) about the team, about the club, and they always have good words and they tell me nice things. “You never know what happens in the summer, but Arsenal is a very, very nice team. They always have very young players, they play attractive football and that is what I like.

“But I better not speak too much about it because tomorrow I can read in the (English) newspapers that I like to play for Arsenal — I think the people at Schalke would not like to hear that.”

Draxler has scored a total of 4 goals this season in 18 appearances in all competitions. He is more at home on the left side of midfield but can play any where in midfield or as a false nine when necessary.
