There are some things in life which are constant. Like Christopher Nolan making a blockbuster movie. Or Usain Bolt winning a gold medal. Or the prices of basic commodities going up. Or Julian Draxler being linked with Arsenal.
Ever since that breakout season in 2012/13, Draxler has been linked to the Emirates for the past three seasons. However, with a move to PSG in the winter transfer window of last season, it was believed that the Draxler-to-Arsenal rumours would cease to exist. However, like it is often said, some things never change.
The German winger secured a transfer to PSG in the January transfer window after an embittered spell at VFL Wolfsburg where he was questioned for his improper attitude towards the end of his stay.
He has performed decently since his move to PSG and has been a vital cog in Unai Emery’s team. He has formed a formidable partnership with Angel Di Maria and Edinson Cavani and was part of the team that drubbed Barcelona 4-0 at home.
When Sead Kolasinac completed his move to Arsenal, his ex-Schalke partner Draxler left a comment on Arsenal’s Instagram post welcoming Kolasinac. Predictably, this has sent twitter into pandemonium.
Maybe Arsenal can use Draxler as part of any negotiations with PSG regarding the transfer of Alexis Sanchez who is rumored to leave the Emirates this summer. Now, that would reduce the Gooners’ pain, wouldn’t it?
