The reliable journalist who broke the news of Mesut Ozil joining The Gunners has stated that Arsenal are leading the race from Bayern to land Germany’s most highly rated young talent, Julian Draxler. Most probably Arsenal are favorites only because Draxler sees Bayern as a career-cide due to lack of opportunities available there.
Julian Draxler has been linked with Arsenal this month about as much as Luis Suarez was last summer while the Gunners’ pursuit of the Liverpool front man was doomed to failure, there may be better news if their reported interest in the Schalke starlet is true.
Former player turned journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft has been continuously informing Gunners’ fanbase of Draxler situation and he could be trusted on as he was the very first who broke the news regarding Ozil’s transfer.
Draxler is currently side-lined through injury, but when he returns, there appear to be clubs willing to spend big to acquire him.
Fjortoft has previously claimed that Schalke would be willing to discuss a move for Draxler this month…if the €45million release-clause that kicks in next summer is beaten.
