For the Arsenal fans are distraught seeing the likes of Vardy and Mahrez rejecting the Gunners, here’s some news dose of transfer rumors to lift your spirits.
First up in today’s transfer rumors comes Julian Draxler. While we have been after him for quite some time now, a media outlet has claimed that Arsene Wenger is ready to offer Wolfsburg €50m to get the services of Draxler. If proved to be true, this price tag will make Draxler the most expensive signing in the history of the club.
While his price tag will raise eyebrows, the meticulous rise of the 22-year-old German indicates that he will be a brilliant signing for the Gunners.
Since becoming the fourth youngest debutant in the history of Bundesliga in 2011, Draxler hasn’t looked back in his career.
In addition to playing as a sole striker for Schalke in 2012/13 season, Draxler played on the wings as well as in the Number 10 role before his move to Wolfsburg.
After moving to Wolfsburg in 2015, Draxler was deployed mainly on the right wing by the Wolfsburg manager. In addition to scoring 9 goals, Draxler provided 8 assists to his teammates last season. Thus, it is safe to say that Draxler has justified the hype which has surrounded him of late.
Thus, if Arsenal could be able to lure him away from the Bundesliga, the likes of Ozil, Sanchez, and Draxler would terrorize the Premier League defenses this season.
If you were feeling upbeat after reading the traits of the German, allow me to dampen your emotions as Lyon Boss has clearly said that Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette is not for sale.
Up to this point, Lacazette has continuously been linked with Arsenal, with Wenger reportedly looking at him to replace Olivier Giroud. However, after seeing their opening bid of £29m being rejected by Lyon, the recent claims of Bruno Genesio does all but to end Arsenal’s hopes of signing the Frenchman.
Lastly, the Gunners have been told that they can sign Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez, albeit for a price of £65m.
As per London Evening Standard, the agent of the player has told the Premier League clubs to part with £65m to sign the Colombian star. In addition to Arsenal, Chelsea have also been monitoring the situation of Rodriguez at the Santiago Bernabeu.
After being reportedly ignored by Zidane during the pre-season, Rodriguez is looking for a new club to get more first team action. As for the Real Madrid manager, recent reports claim that he is willing to sell the Colombian midfielder in this transfer window.
Thus, if Arsenal are willing to enter the race for his signature, the Gunners would have to outprice Chelsea first.
