Arsenal to Sign £33m Bundesliga Star “Within Hours”

By on January 29, 2014

Arsenal are reportedly extremely close to signing their long-term target from Schalke, German wonderkid Julian Draxler.

The deal will apparently cost Arsenal a hefty sum, with some suggesting the total amount could reach as much £33m.

It is suggested that Arsenal will sign the player, then loan him back to Schalke immediately for the rest of the season – a move that will likely lower Draxler’s price below his £37m release clause.

Wenger is also known to be desperate to secure the German’s future, and is willing to miss out on his services this season to ensure that he is an Arsenal man this time next year.

Arsenal are enjoying the spoils of a recent £150m kit deal with Puma, allowing them to splash cash on new players like Draxler.

It is being reported that a deal will be done “within hours,” more to follow on this developing story.
