Report: €45m Attacker ‘Desperate’ To Make Arsenal Move

By on January 25, 2014

Arsenal proposed move for Julian Draxler is gaining more and more momentum with reports now suggesting that the Schalke attacker is ‘desperate’ to make the move to north London this month.

News broke from Germany last night during our 4-0 win over Coventry that claimed we had reached an agreement with Schalke for the player but it wasn’t clear whether the deal would go through now or in the summer.

One of the uncertainties was whether the 20-year-old would want to disrupt his season by switching clubs and potentially jeopardise his chances of making the Germany World Cup squad.

However, the Mirror are reporting today that Draxler is ‘desperate’ to complete the move to Arsenal NOW and doesn’t want to wait until the end of the season.

If true, this would obviously be a major boost and if we’ve also agreed a fee for him, the only thing left to do is persuade Schalke they need to sell this month and not in the summer.

The Bundesliga club are having a disappointing campaign domestically, but are still in the Champions League so are understandably reluctant to part ways with their star man.

But they have to face Real Madrid in the last 16, so realistically they have little chance of progressing anyway, so hopefully we can twist their arm and convince them to do the business now.

I’m still trying to hold myself back from getting too excited about this, but it would be a sensational buy if we manage to pull it off.

    Well, he is going to be a very addition. But I think Wenger should convert him to a full centre forward given his physical attributes, age, skills and football sense.
