In case you weren’t aware, Arsenal aren’t having the best of transfer windows this summer.

Their chase for a striker isn’t going well, with only unknown Japanese forward Takuma Asano adding to Arsene Wenger’s attack.

Wenger is chasing Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez, and has recently been linked with a move for Julian Draxler.

The Germany star has told Wolfsburg that he wants to leave the Bundesliga this season, after just one year at the club.

The 22-year-old joined The Wolves from Schalke 04 last summer, and despite the player willing to try and force a move away from the cub, Wolfsburg themselves have issued a statement saying the player will be going ‘nowhere’.

Draxler has been on the scene since he was 17, and was once denied the chance to play in a Champions League game for Schalke because the game would have finished after 10pm, as it’s illegal in Germany for anyone under 18 to work past 10pm.

Speaking to Bild, the midfielder said:

I want to leave Wolfsburg.

The coach knows for more than three weeks.

Two days after the semi-final at the European Championships I told him how I see the whole situation and what I want – which is to leave the club.

Draxler started four of Germany’s six games at Euro 2016, scoring in their 3-0 win over Slovakia, and has 24 caps for his country.

As football fans know only too well, no matter how much a player might want to leave a club, if he’s under contract and the club don’t want them to leave, you’re fighting a losing battle.

That is unless a huge bid is tabled, but we all know Wenger and his money are never easily parted!
