Arsenal Revive Interest In £30m German Superstar


Arsenal have revived their interest in German superstar Julian Draxler and are looking to capture the Schalke midfielder for £30m this summer, according to reports.

The German international, who first attracted the Gunners attention in January 2014, was heavily linked with a move to North London throughout last year but an agreement regarding a fee was never reached.

An injury to Draxler prevented a move taking place earlier this year but Arsenal kept tabs on the player and will launch a bid this summer, if reports are to be believed.

Schalke ace Draxler, who has also attracted the attention of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea, is highly-regarded as one of the brightest young prospects in European football.

The German outfit do not want to sell Draxler and will fight to keep hold of him. However, if he is attracted with a move to the Premier League there is not much the Bundesliga outfit can do.

Draxler would link-up with compatriots Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski, Per Mertesacker and Serge Gnabry if he moved to the Emirates this summer.
