Wenger is looking to pay around £30m for the player however, but Schalke are by no means certain to let their prized asset leave this month, as they have said on numerous occasions that they would prefer to hold on to the attacker.

Draxler is the brightest German prospect around at present, and his displays for the last few seasons have led to some of the world’s biggest clubs looking closely at his progression.

Named one of the ‘Ten Best Young Players in Europe‘ by the Guardian this month, Draxler is an explosive attacker capable of moments of pure genius. His vision, touch and poise are quite exemplary, and he is has all the attributes to become one of the world’s best players in the near future.

What do you think? Will Arsenal get their man this month? Let me know in the comements below…

  1. I will like to see draxler in gunners shirt this january pls wenger hurry up and buy dis man

  2. Honestly my believe!! No one prices Arsenal player in the tranfer window(s) Wenger has no right pricing other club players and if he really need the services of other club player(s) just buy the fucking player(s) and get it over with give Arsenal a proper fighting chance of winning the title this year, I’m tired of every season every transfer window Arsenal is d only team in the EPL without ah new signing to show coming on to the last days of the transfer window, then scrambling for players in the last 2 days. How can Wenger call his self a professional, it disgust me to be an Arsenal fan during any transfer period

  3. I hope Gunners will get Draxler before the end of this month
