Advanced talks: Arsenal close to signing PSG attacker, surprise report claims

Posted by

Arsenal are closing in on signing PSG’s Julian Draxler this window, according to Todo Fichajes.

Draxler, who perhaps hasn’t been able to fulfil the potential he once displayed as a youngster at Schalke, is still an undeniably talented player, if out of favour at PSG.

With his contract with the French champions due to expire in the summer, and there currently being no suggestion that he will be signing a new one, the German’s attention will be turning to finding a new club.

If Todo Fichajes are to be believed, Draxler may not have to wait until the summer to sign one, with their report claiming that Arsenal will pay PSG a small fee in order to get the deal done this month.

Mikel Arteta could be forgiven for wanting to strengthen his squad considering what a rollercoaster ride the first-half of the campaign was. Could Draxler be the man to help Arsenal on their late push for Europe?

We’ll have to wait and see if it materialises first. There is currently nothing in the English media to imply that Todo Fichajes claims are true – but stranger things have happened!

More Stories Julian Draxler


  1. Arsenal, you have started with your mediocrity. Are looking to another flop like William and Pepe ? Is Julian Draxler the player we need right now? Draxler that could not feature for PSG. Why do we (Arsenal FC) sometimes downgrade ourselves by ourselves ? Instead of signing Draxler, why don’t sign me ? since you have enough money to waste on below average players.

  2. Draxler is actually old and matured enough to have a nice impact on arsenal’s young players. So i feel it’s a good attempt, i believe in the powerful shooter!

  3. Arteta should get rid of Willian. Loan Eddie Nketia and Pepe. He should with immediate effect promote Balogan from the under 23s to the first team. He is too good for that. The longer Arteta procrastinates,the sooner the young talent will wave good bye. It will be a huge loss. Balogan can be the next Thiery Henry.

  4. There is an old saying: “Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it”. It seems EDU and Arteta fall into this category. It seems Arsenal are going after another couple of players who are surplus to requirements at their current clubs see Willian, Luiz, Mari, Soares, Ceballos). I suspect in 12 months we will be trying to offload them too.
