It feels like the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the Germany international Julian Draxler have been going on forever. It has certainly been a staple of the football rumour mongers in every transfer window over the last few years, but it cannot have been that long because the player is still only 24-years old.
The football media may soon have to find another player to constantly link with a move to Arsenal, though, because the deal could finally happen this season when the transfer window opens in January, according to The Mirror. It seems that Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani is not the only PSG player affected by the arrival of the Brazilian forward Neymar from Barcelona, although their fall out has been much more public.
The report does not go into detail about the reasons, but it claims that Draxler has told his club that he wants to leave and the PSG chiefs are willing to let him go. The fact that he often plays in the left forward role which is Neymar’s favourite is surely no coincidence.
The young German was apparently keen to link up with his international team mate Mesut Ozil at club level, although he was thinking about our number 11 going to Paris rather than him coming to north London. Now, though, the transfer to Arsenal seems a real possibility, so could the Gunners finally be about to sign the player we have reportedly been after since he was a teenage sensation at Schalke?
