Rumours suggest that Arsenal are all in for Draxler and Metro’s latest report claims that they even want to offer Podolski in the deal to sign the player.
Draxler has become the top name in Wenger’s list of players he wants to sign and he will have to fight the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea in order to do so.
The Metro claim that Arsenal are planning to pay £20million to Schalke along with Podolski for the youth prodigy, but the club want a cash deal instead.
This means that if the Metro deal is not happening, then Wenger will have no option but to pay £37million to activate the player’s release clause.
Podolski is yet to make his presence felt at Arsenal as he has not found himself a place in the starting XI since his move to the club. The player has three goals to his name from two appearances this season.
However, this January does not seem the right time for this deal and it would take a little time which means that it will have to wait till summer.
