Arsenal are very keen to sign the 20-year-old German this month, and according to Sky Sports, the Gunners have sent a delegation to negotiate with Schalke 04, with the German club looking for the full £37m of his buyout clause.
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…
