Arsenal owner to authorise Draxler switch

Published Add your comment

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke looks set to authorise the club's move for German star Julian Draxler, reports the Metro

It had previously been reported that the Gunners would make a move for the 20-year-old in this transfer window, and it now appears the north London outfit will swoop for the midfield ace. 

Draxler is already a full Germany international and is already closing in on 100 appearances for Schalke 04. 

And with the star's buy-out clause set at £40 million, Arsenal could break the bank for another German ace before the end of this window.

Arsene Wenger will be desperate to end the club's eight-year trophy drought this season and, with Arsenal sitting top of the Premier League, the addition of Draxler would only improve his side's chances of a trophy in this campaign. 

Arsenal's immediate attention will turn to their FA Cup clash with League One outfit Coventry City on Friday night.
