We really have no idea if the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a possible late swoop for the Schalke and Germany star Julian Draxler are based on truth. The Gunners have been linked with the talented young German for years now but that does not necessarily make it so.
This is all just speculation of course, as we really do not know which, if any, of the Arsenal transfer rumours are close to the truth of what is going on behind the scenes at Arsenal or in the mind of Arsene Wenger. But I have been reading that the Frenchman may be turning his transfer attention from Karim Benzema to other possible options to strengthen the Arsenal attack.
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.
Are Arsenal on the Verge of a Move for Yet Another German WC Star? by AT
Over the past month or so, there have been several media reports linking the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger with a move for Schalke’s Benedikt Howedes once the transfer window opens in January. With the Gunners struggling defensively, it seems as though Wenger has once again turned towards the Bundesliga to bolster his side’s credentials, this time in defence.
According to recent Arsenal transfer rumours, the FC Schalke and Germany international star Julian Draxler was thought to be high on the list of potential signings for Arsene Wenger in the January transfer window that is fast approaching. But the exciting young player has suffered yet another injury setback.
In one of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, it is being reported that Arsene Wenger is preparing to go back to Germany in January to sign the young Schalke star Julian Draxler. The Gunners were strongly tipped to sign the talented 20-year old in the summer, but concerns over the fitness issues that saw him miss out on the World Cup triumph in Brazil meant that Wenger went for Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona in a £30 million transfer instead.
I know that Arsene Wenger signed the Germany international Mesut Ozil for Arsenal because he thought the 25-year old superstar would be one of the key pieces in the jigsaw for the Gunners team of the future. And the Frenchman has always backed his record signing and given him plenty of time and patience to produce the sort of performances we used to see for Germany and Real Madrid.
