It was a German World Cup star who lit up the Transfer Tavern on deadline day not so long ago, sending Arsenal fans into meltdown when he made his sensational move from Real Madrid to north London.
Today, there is more news coming in about a long term target of Arsenal football club, who like Ozil is a World Cup winning midfield maestro – however, this one will not be exciting the boozy Gunners in this pub one bit!
The Guardian have reported that Julian Draxler, the 21-year old attacking midfielder who Arsene Wenger has been chasing for some time now, has left Schalke to sign for Bundesliga rivals Wolfsburg and will not be coming to the Emirates!
A deal that is very much seen as a chain reaction to the events that saw Kevin De Bruyne bid farewell to Wolfsburg in favour of Manchester City, is the second largest fee within the German League, at just over £25 million.
How do you feel about missing out on this player Arsenal? Surely you could afforded that price tag? Let us know below!
