Arsenal fans would certainly like to see Wenger sign a world class striker but let’s face it, Wenger is certainly not going to spend £60 million on a striker this summer. Unfortunately, the prices that strikers are going for this summer means Arsenal have to be a little creative or just like last season end without having gotten what they need.
To this end reports from German have it that Arsenal have won the race to complete the signing of Wolfsburg and Germany international attacking midfielder Julian Draxler. Draxler has always been linked with a move to Arsenal. When he was at Schalke 04, Arsenal was said to have table bids for him which were rejected by his then club before he was finally sold to Wolfsburg.
And although Wolfsburg have often made it clear the player is not up for sale, reports today have it that the Bundesliga side have actually accepted Arsenal’s £43m bid for the signature of the player and that the player will arrive London on Wednesday to undergo a medical ahead of a move to the Gunners.
Draxler according to the reports will sign a 5-years deal with the Arsene Wenger tutored Arsenal side. We will keep you posted as events unfolds on this rumour.
