talkSPORT have a rather sensational story for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern today as it is claimed that Schalke’s Julian Draxler now has a whole host more admirers and it may well be tough for Arsene Wenger to land his services this summer.
Arsenal have long been linked to the 19-year-old and were thought to be in pole position to land the player. Now however it seems that they may well struggle with the club facing competition from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.
The club have faced a hit and miss week, seeing prized asset Mario Gotze agree to join rivals Bayern Munich but basically securing their place in the Champions League final with a four goal thrashing of Real Madrid. The club now have at least £32 million from the sale of Gotze to spend in the summer and are considering splashing that cash on Arsenal target Draxler.
The news will not exactly thrill Arsene Wenger who has already faced several transfer blows before the window has even officially opened and is determined that this will be the summer where he not only splashes the cash but finally lands his targets.
Will Draxler move to Dortmund as Mario Gotze’s replacement? Rate this rumour below.
