Vidal and Draxler to sign for Arsenal in AMAZING £50 million double swoop! by Midkemma (looking in his crystal ball!)
Long time Arsenal target and German international, Julian Draxler, will make his long awaited journey to the Emirates this summer in an amazing big money deal between Arsenal and FC Schalke 04.
Wenger will be letting go of both Podolski and Campbell to make room for a ‘special talent’, a player who is capable of playing on either wing or as a potential central striker, Wenger made Draxler his priority after Borussia Dortmund rejected any advance for their star striker, Aubameyang, who would cost Wenger over £40 million, instead Wenger opted for the cheaper yet equally talented Draxler for £28.7million.
With the signing of Draxler it is believed that Wenger will be happy with the number of wide forwards at his disposal for next season which will include Welbeck, who Wenger feels needs more time before playing as the teams main central striker.
The other area of concern for Wenger is central midfield; Coquelin has provided Arsenal with something they have lacked since the good old days when Vieira could be seen charging up and down the pitch to be everywhere that he was needed, a bit of steel in the spine of the team. Wenger knows that without Coquelin his team will be exposed to clever counter attacks and Vidal appears to be his man and will cost Arsenal a believed £21.3 million.
Where he will play is still unknown, Vidal is a tough tackler but he also provides for his team further up the field, scoring 7 goals last season including 4 in the league for Juventus, not really the holding player that Arsenal appear to need but another box to box all action midfielder.
What do you guys think?
Is Vidal what Arsenal need? Will Draxler help Arsenal lift the title?
