With Arsene Wenger’s transfer dealings thus far, one would be tempted to question his ability to attract transfer target and sign them for the club.
Although, Arsenal’s interest is not ascertained yet, the Gunners have been handed a blow in our quest to land Germany international Julian Draxler after his club revealed that they will not sell the player.
The 22-year-old Germany international had revealed that he wants out of the Volkswagen Arena but Wolfsburg language seems to be at parallel with the winger’s.
Wolfsburg have categorically ruled out selling the player, releasing a statement denying the existence of “any written or verbal agreement made at any time regarding a transfer of Julian Draxler within the current transfer period up to August 31, 2016.”
The statement continued: “This is confirmed by a release clause stipulated with Julian Draxler and his management which only comes into force in the summer of 2017.
“Wolfsburg will not transfer Julian Draxler during the current transfer period. Wolfsburg have explained to Julian Draxler once again in a talk that his express to leave the club cannot be accommodated.”
However, a deal will not be easy, as Wolfsburg have insisted that Draxler is going nowhere, although he does have a release clause of €75million (£63m).
