Arsene Wenger is still set to put his fire-sale woes behind him by signing German ace Julian Draxler.
The former Schalke and Wolfsburg attacker is reportedly unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain, just eight months after signing for the French giants for £38million.
And with the club’s epic chase for Kylian Mbappe, following their capture of Neymar for a world record £198m, the 23-year-old is ready to cut his losses.
Arsenal are facing a mass exodus of attacking talent, with Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the verge of leaving the Emirates.
According to Sport, the Germany international has been angling for a move away from the Parc des Princes after the purchase of Neymar, who plays in a similar position.
And Wenger, who has long-been poised to sign Draxler, is at the front of the queue to land him.
Draxler proved to be a shrewd signing in his early days, scoring in the first leg of PSG’s epic tie with Barcelona.
There has also been speculation he could be used as a makeweight for the Mbappe deal, but Monaco and PSG look to have agreed a loan move with a commitment to buy for £138m.
🚨 EXCLUSIVE OFFER: Premier League Top Goalscorer 🚨
ROMELU LUKAKU has come in to 2/1 to finish as the Premier League top scorer.
The Belgian scored twice against West Ham on Sunday to put an immediate market down in the Golden Boot race.
Harry Kane, who has NEVER scored a goal in August, is 2/1.
And there is value to be had in Alexandre Lacazette.
He is 8/1 even after scoring on his debut against Leicester last week.
Sun Bets have a blinding special offer for top scorer.
If you bet £25 on any player to top the table at the end of the season, they’ll give a £5 free bet for every game he scores in until October.
The offer is valid until midnight August 27 and is open to ALL customers.
Draxler scored six goals in his first few games for PSG, but has fallen out of favour with Unai Emery after the club’s big-money additions.
Many observers will remark how he has never truly settled at any one club despite the fact that he is one of the most talented young players in Europe.
Arsenal do not have the appeal of Champions League football this season though, with the Gunners playing against BATE Borisov, Cologne and Red Star Belgrade in Group H of the Europa League.
