Arsenal could be on alert after rumours in Germany claimed that Wolfsburg are now open to selling Julian Draxler in the January transfer window.
Juventus, Arsenal and Paris St-Germain have all previously been linked to the precocious attacking midfielder, who has produced impressive for Germany in Euro 2016.
Last week the Bundesliga club’s sporting director Klaus Allofs had insisted that they were open for right offers for the Arsenal target and suggested that they could be open to selling the 23-year-old. And now also Bild claim that Draxler could be leaving the club next transfer window as Wolfsburg are ready to cash in if they receive a fitting offer.
The 23-year-old, who came to Wolfsburg for 35 million euros from Schalke in August 2015, was dropped by coach Valerien Ismael for the first time for Saturday’s game against Hertha Berlin after a series of dull performances and was booed by his own fans after being brought on as a substitute in the 3-2 defeat at home to Hertha Berlin.
After being received by poorly from the fans, the Arsenal target expressed his frustration and suggested he wants to leave the club as soon as possible.
“You can only imagine what these whistles do to a person,” said Draxler.
“It’s out of the question that someone wouldn’t have problems to perform after that.
“The fans have the right to do it, but it’s certainly not conducive.
“I already made my feelings clear in the summer and I stand by that.”
The 23-year-old has struggled for form this season, with no goals and no assists in 10 Bundesliga appearances, while Wolfsburg have recorded just two wins in 12 league fixtures so far leaving them just two points above relegation zone.
Previously during the Summer Draxler revealed the same that he wanted to leave Wolfsburg straight away with Juventus having been close to signing him , but the club blocked an immediate departure.
And now with such situation with the club and fans, it’s just a matter of time before the German International bids adieu to the Bundesliga club and joins any top European club for next challenge.
