Arsenal supporters are finally hearing some positive news regarding their pursuit of one of the brightest stars in the Bundesliga and it comes thanks to Jamie Sanderson from Metro.
Sanderson claims that Schalke playmaker Julian Draxler has confirmed that he would be ‘very interested’ in a possible transfer to the Emirates Stadium.
The 20-year-0ld, who is viewed as the rising star in German football, has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Gunners as Arsene Wenger looks to strengthen his squad during the January transfer window.
Now amid growing speculation in the bar that Wenger is preparing a winter bid, the player has come out to indicate that a future transfer would be of interest to him.
“They always have very young players, they play attractive football and that’s what I like.
“You never know what happens – but Arsenal is a very, very nice team.”
However Wenger’s hopes of a January transfer could be put on hold as the midfielder plans to stay in German for the foreseeable future.
“I won’t switch in the winter,” he added.
“It’s very important for me to play nearly every game. For my club I have the chance to play nearly every game, it’s important for me to improve myself.
“I’ve said every summer I have to look what is the best for me and I will do in the summer again and we will see what happens.”
Is this a positive development for the Gunners? Do Arsenal already have too many quality attacking midfielders in their ranks? Let us know your thoughts below.
