Arsenal are reportedly in talks to replace Ozil with Julian Draxler

Everyone is well aware on the Mesut Ozil situation at Arsenal, and it would seem that Julian Draxler is in a very similar situation with the French giants PSG. Both players have six months left on their current contracts, and both clubs would ideally prefer to see them leave this month rather than wait until the summer.

It is being reported today by 90min.com that sources have told them that Arsenal are considering Draxler as a replacement for Ozil in the Arsenal squad and talks are ongoing. Their report said……

Arsenal have long been keen on a move for Draxler, having failed to sign him when he swapped Wolfsburg for PSG back in 2017, and they are open to reigniting their interest now that the German has entered the final six months of his contract.

PSG have made it clear that they will not stand in Draxler’s way if he wants to leave the club, and the 27-year-old now is now in talks with a number of clubs across Europe.

Arsenal are interested in offering Draxler a pre-contract ahead of landing him on a free transfer, but the Gunners would also like to bring the German in before the January transfer window comes to a close.

Arsenal have been linked with Draxler over so many years now, but at just 27 he could have many more years at the top of the game if he can regain his form from his days playing in Germany. I am sure he will demand a very high wages if he comes on a free transfer, but if Ozil’s wages are off the books I’m guessing we can afford Draxler…

Would you want to take a chance on Draxler with a free transfer?

    It wouldn’t be a transfer window without the usual Draxler rumour would it.

    1. Highbury Hero says:

      Lol!

    2. Skills1000 says:

      Very funny.

  2. Kev82 says:

    Higuain next 😂😂

    1. ArsenalWhy says:

      Hahaha exactly. Every transfer window the same thing.

  3. Sue says:

    I wondered how long it’d be…. now for Benzema!!

    1. RSH says:

      M’Vila will surely sign this window as well….

  4. Grandad says:

    Would prefer Draxler to Willian any day of the week.

    1. jon fox says:

      I’d even prefer my cat to Willian. More life in him and faster moving too.

      1. Highbury Hero says:

        😂😂😂

  5. jon fox says:

    I have a better rumour even than this fake one – Ozil is apparently going to sign a new five year contract at Arsenal – how about that folks; do I now win the fake rumour prize then?

    If I do, then I must pay due homage to JA, who gave me massive and consistent competition for that valued prize!

    1. Highbury Hero says:

      After he leave don’t be surprised to feel something is missing form your daily schedule.

      1. lcw says:

        HH: You are really good.

  6. Sue says:

    It’s official – Rob Holding has signed a new long-term contract until 2024, with an option for a further year

    1. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

      He deserved it, our best center back at right side with a right foot.

  7. ken1945 says:

    Excellent news Sue, he deserves it.

    1. Shema says:

      Draxler is dead wood and can’t do anything for Arsenal!

  8. RSH says:

    Quite a throwback transfer rumor haha. Draxler’s time ended when he opted for money and PSG and it was obvious he wouldn’t be able to compete with their world class forwards. Not gonna happen.

  9. ken1945 says:

    Draxler :Another player who turned us down and who we, seemingly, want to sign and help regain the form we once wanted him for!!!

    Sorry, posted this with the wrong article earlier…

    What happened to all that talk about having a clear plan regarding this transfer window??? Arteta made it seem like we were simply waiting for the window to open so that we could make some decisive moves, both incoming and outgoing…so far we got rid of a goalkeeper who was so horrible he couldn’t get playing time ahead of Runar, we finally loaned out Saliba, but not before we showed once again just how incompetent we are when in comes to man management, we sent Kola back to the Bundesliga(another “free” transfer on bad wages) and we brought in the CB from Hertha, who was playing in 4th division and was only acquired because that was the only way they would take Guendo(which means we’re functionally paying for him to play at Hertha)…this reeks like another shitty January window at the Emirates, where we either sign a desperate 11th hour half-measure or Arteta takes a page out of the Wenger Handbook of Winter Transfer Window Failures and simply says we couldn’t find anyone talented enough to improve our lineup…the funny thing is that all he had to say from the get-go was that they would work diligently to not only get rid of some periphery players, but to likewise improve the team, as everyone knows this window is problematic at the best of times

    1. RSH says:

      we cant sign someone until people go though. Mainly we are waiting on Ozil and Sokratis to finally leave and free up some money. We won’t sign a new player while also paying them.

  11. Indian Gunner London says:

    No, Thank You.

    Promote youth from within and offload deadwood players is our priority IMHO.

    1. ozziegunner says:

      👍

  12. Liam Gallagher says:

    No thanks I would rather we sign nobody than take any sort of risk and then not be able to afford Aouar in the summer. Although I wouldn’t turn my nose up at Zaha who could help solve our creative issues.

    1. Nickerless Bender says:

      Good Shout on Zaha.

      I don’t think we will be signing anyone significant this January bar for the academy or a goalkeeper on the cheap or free and doesn’t required to be paid 😂.

      Squad is overloaded in the wrong departments and if Kronke is taking short term loans then it means the cupboard is bare.

      Me thinks it is all about reducing the wages so we can see what we do in the summer.

      1. Sue says:

        Very good shout 👍

  13. wil says:

    this is another flop who has failed to live up expectations. Plesse STOP.

    1. Wolffman Paul. says:

      I have only ever seen him play for Die Mannschaft (German National team). He was only ever a make weight squad player for them. He never realy impressed me, although a reasonable player not a great player. I would question his Attitude and Ego, He appears to me anyway as a bit of a Prima Donna.

      1. ozziegunner says:

        👍 His mother loves him and used to manage him.
