Arsenal target and Schalke 04’s Julian Draxler has confirmed he is likely to leave the German club should they agree to sell him to another club. The 19 year old high rated mifielder has become a target of Wenger with reports claiming the gunners are ready to table a bid of 40 million pounds to acquire the service of the German.
“I don’t mind people speculating, I’ll let them have their fun,” he said. “If nothing extraordinary happens, I will be here on Monday.
“But Schalke could change their mind and say ‘Well, 40 or 30 million euros is not so bad,’ and then I can’t do much about it.”
“If the club absolutely wants to sell me, I will not say ‘No, I want to stay.'”
Arsenal are in the market for a new midfielder something Wenger himself confirmed during a post match press conference. They have had a bid accepted for Real Madrid and Argentine’s Angel Di Maria but now trying to convince the player to make the switch to England.
Another player the gunners have been trying to sign is Newcastle United’s Yohan Cabaye. They have had 2 bids ( 10 and 13 million ) rejected for the French man with reports claiming they will be going back to Newcastle United with a new bid said to be at of at least 15 million pounds
