Arsene Wenger has secretly admitted that he is curious to sign the young German highly rated star from Schalke 04. Schalke have been willing to hear to any offers which fall in the domain of their asking price and since then Draxler has been heavily linked with The Gunners.
But while Wenger admits he’s intrigued by the possibility of signing Draxler, he says that a deal for the Germany international is not close. Last season there were speculations regarding the German joining the Gunners but suddenly the move broke down as Draxler decided to stay as he wanted into impress his National coach.
Arsene Wenger said, “‘I am curious about it [Draxler deal]. I’m curious because it’s my nature. But the transfer period lasts until the 31st of January – and at the moment I say we are not close to signing anybody.”
Wenger was also coy on suggestions that the 20-year-old has already had a tour of Arsenal’s Hertfordshire training ground, saying the reports ‘were like a UFO sighting.’
Draxler is thought to be available for around £30million.
