The Metro goes on to say that FC Schalke are looking to cash in on the versatile forward, and Arsene Wenger may well jump at the chance to get a player he rates very highly.
Draxler is a creative midfielder who is comfortable as a No.10, but he is also capable of playing out wide. Arsene Wenger has said in the past that he believes the Bundesliga star will eventually be converted into a striker (via the Daily Mail), and if we were to sign him we could see the same progression we saw with Robin van Persie (hopefully without the same conclusion).
Schalke are looking to fund a move for Xherdan Shaqiri (via the Metro), and this could give us the opportunity we need to lure Draxler away from the club.
The 21-year-old was once the most promising young star in Germany, and looked to have a hugely bright future ahead of him. He may still fulfill his potential, but his development has certainly been stunted somewhat – largely due to injury.
