For the last few transfer windows there have always been Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a possible move for the exciting young talent Julian Draxler. But there has always seemed to be something in the way of the Gunners and his club Schalke getting the deal done and now it looks like it could be off the table altogether.
There have been some injury problems at crucial times in the transfer market for the Germany international attacking star and it was also being reported that his Bundesliga club were asking for a ridiculous amount of money for such a young player. So Draxler stayed where he was.
And although the extra time with Schalke has proved his fitness and ability, it may also have convinced Arsene Wenger that Draxler is not really what Arsenal need at the minute, because it is being reported by Fichajes.net that the Italian champions Juventus are on the verge of sealing the transfer of the 21-year old for a relatively measly fee of around €30 million.
That does not seem a lot for a player of Draxler´s potential and it is well within the reach of the Gunners, so does this mean that the Serie A club are a more attractive proposition than us or simply that the prof has not tried to challenge the old lady of Turin for this reported long term transfer target? And are we happy about it either way?
