Tottenham offered £35m-rated star Wenger reportedly wanted for years, why Arsenal must swoop now

Tottenham have been offered the opportunity to sign Julian Draxler from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to the Daily Star.

They report that Spurs can do a deal worth £35 million for the German playmaker if they so wish, but Draxler apparently remains low down on their list of summer priorities.

That is despite Christian Eriksen apparently edging closer to the exit door, and Draxler would be the perfect replacement for the Dane if he does leave.

But that relative lack of interest from Spurs could leave the door open for another club to take advantage of the valuation.

And across north London, there was very strong interest in Draxler while Arsene Wenger was manager. As far back as 2014, the Daily Mail reported that Arsene Wenger wanted the German at the Emirates Stadium – back when he was a Schalke player.

Then, in 2016, Arsenal were linked by Eurosport with a swoop when Draxler left Wolfsburg to join PSG. In 2017, the Sun said that Wenger was still trying to get him to Arsenal.

And now he’s on the market again and it would be calling if Draxler finally decides to move to north London but pitches up across town from Arsenal.

Unai Emery doesn’t have a great deal of cash to spend this window but £35 million for Draxler isn’t an awful deal in the current market – and he needs a more dynamic playmaker than Mesut Ozil at his disposal.
