Having picked up all three points in a thrilling game on the opening weekend of the Premier League, Arsenal are one of the many clubs that are still active in the transfer market this summer. The Gunners are still looking for a winger as they might have to replace their Chilean talisman, Alexis Sanchez, this summer.
The former Barcelona man has decided not to extend his contract at the Emirates and though Arsenal are adamant that he is not for sale, he looks to be heading towards the exit before the deadline day. Arsene Wenger has been looking at AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar as a replacement but has not been able to lure him to the club as yet.
However, they were given a huge boost in their pursuit for a replacement on Friday after German playmaker Julian Draxler was put up for sale by French giants PSG. Reports claim that the French giants want Draxler to find a new club after they spent insane amounts on Neymar Jr this summer. And English outfit Sun now claims that Arsenal are readying a £32m bid for his services this summer.
Having joined the Ligue 1 outfit just this January, Draxler has been decent in almost every appearance he made for the club in France. A skilful winger with a gifted technique, the 23-year old is one of the most exciting players in Europe at the moment and belongs at the highest level.
At his age, he already has 35 senior appearances for Germany, 153 Bundesliga appearances and 34 Champions League appearances, making him an established star. Strong in the air and in hold up play, Draxler is a dynamic and versatile player who can dribble past opponents with ease but can also play quick passes in dangerous areas, making him a hard player to mark.
He has to work on his defensive skills but with a path-breaking pass always up his sleeve, he is more effective in an attacking role. At the Emirates, Draxler is a like-to-like replacement for the 28-year Chilean, who may yet stay back at the back.
If Sanchez decides to see off his contract, adding Draxler will make Arsenal one of the strongest squads in England. Even if Sanchez, leaves, Draxler can walk into the first team and alongside the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette, will be more effective than ever.
He is still young and learning and can set up a legacy at Arsenal and coming at just over £30m, is an absolute no brainer for Arsene Wenger.
