After it looked to Arsenal fans, or to me at least, that Arsene Wenger was dragging his feet about getting something going in the summer transfer market, we could be set to go ballistic and complete the transfer of a player that has been linked with a move to north London in no end of Arsenal transfer rumours over the last two years.
According to a Metro report, the talented 21-year old German international is now keen on the step up, after previously saying that he thought his progress in the game might be better served staying with his current club Schalke.
The player´s own wishes are not the only reason why Arsenal may now complete this fantastic transfer though, as another Metro report has confirmed that the Gunners have parted company with our young Japanese international Ryo Miyaichi. He has signed for the German club St. Pauli and as he plays on the wing has opened up a Draxler sized hole in the Arsenal squad.
The question now is, will Wenger and Arsenal cough up the nearly £30 million that Schalke want for their exciting young star?
