Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are discussing the resurgence of a transfer rumour they thought was long since dead, only to see it revived by their manager.
Metro quote Arsene Wenger as revealing he still holds interest in Julian Draxler, who moved to Wolfsburg last summer, and believe it suggests the long-serving Arsenal boss could eye a new swoop for the German.
‘You have as well some other players like (Leroy) Sane in Germany. It will be very interesting as well to follow what Draxler is doing, he’s still a very young player.’
Arsenal were following Draxler closely when he was at previous employers Schalke but it seemed the trail ran cold when he moved across the Bundesliga last summer, although it now appears a move could materialise in the future after all.
Our landlord isn’t looking to much into these comments though and believes Wenger was simply heralding a young talent, although he does admit he’d love to see Draxler in the Premier League.
