Alexis Sanchez has been linked with the Arsenal exit door for over 12 months now, and may finally get his wish to move clubs.
It has been made perfectly clear that he wants to playing Champions League football this season, and with a team worthy of winning it, but our club have so far rejected any offers for his signature, but may be set to change their minds.
Arsene Wenger is a known long-term admirer of Julian Draxler, who has just been given a green light to seek a new club, and the £32 Million asking price is more than reasonable for a player of his ability.
Draxler’s capture will not come easy, with Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool also claimed to be interested, but we should definitely move quickly to ensure we talk to him before our rivals get stuck in.
The German has lost his place in Unai Emery’s first-team plans after the arrival of Neymar from Barcelona, and PSG are believed to be looking to balance their books by offloading some unwanted players, with Draxler the first victim of the blockbuster €222 Million deal.
Wenger has already admitted this week that despite trying to trim his squad down, there is room for an ‘exceptional talent’ to join the side, and Draxler has been on the Frenchman’s radar since 2014 at least.
Would Draxler’s arrival allow one of Alexis Sanchez or Ozil to leave the club? Would the German join us despite not having Champions League football for the current campaign?
