Draxler saga comes to an end!
Julian Draxler has been the player on the lips of many Arsenal fans these last few weeks, with the player being very much the transfer talk of the town. The long running saga that you may consider to have gone on for about four years, has finally come to an end, with the German choosing to join Paris Saint Germain instead of Arsenal.
Arsenal were supposedly in locked horns with Wolfsburg trying to do a deal for the German international. But it took one PSG bid of around £38 million to secure the player, suggesting that Arsene Wenger was most probably haggling on the price once again. There’s no real evidence to suggest that Wenger was actually interested in signing the player in January. However based on the suggestion that he’s been following Draxler for his signature ever since his early Bundesliga days with Schalke, it would seem odd for Wenger to pass without having a bid, when the player becomes available.
Draxler has now been pictured holding a PSG shirt, with his name and number 23 on the back. The picture was taken with Patrick Kluivert and it all but confirms that the player has secured a move to Ligue 1.
Well after many years of chasing, i wouldn’t put it past Arsene Wenger to have another pop at trying to buy the young German international. But on this occasion, Wenger won’t be making Ozil happy by securing the transfer of one of his international teammates. It’s time for the Gunners to now move onto their next transfer target for the January window, whoever that player may be!
