Certainly one of the reasons for the Gunners being landing the coup of the season last season was that the players and the fans both urged for a transfer which could boost up their confidence for challenging the silverware. It is because of the Ozil’s signing that Gunners are fairly looking favorites to land the title.
Now arguably Arsenal’s best player this season Per Mertesacker has urged Arsene Wenger to land his fellow countrymen Julian Draxler who is sighted by critics as a talent alongside Reus and Gotze’s stature.
Arsenal are reportedly considering making a bid for Schalke ace Draxler, who has been told he can leave the Bundesliga club this month.
And while the Gunners are well stocked in their midfield engine room, Mertesacker says the 20-year-old would be a superb addition.
Mertesacker said, “He [Draxler] is a great talent. He has already make a big impact at Schalke and in the German national team, despite his young age. He would be very welcome here. I’m excited to see what happens. You hear a lot of rumours this time of year.”
