There has been a lot of speculation about Arsenal splashing out somewhere in the region of £37 million on German International Julian Draxler.
Does anyone else see this as pie in the sky?
Why on earth would Arsene Wenger spend that kind of money on a 20 year old attacking midfielder?
We need backup or competition for Giroud, not someone we need to “mould” into a top class striker.
Never mind the fact that he needs time to settle into the Premier League, he is a lot of money (by Arsenal’s standards) and just because we spent £42.3 million on Özil doesn’t mean we’re suddenly going to spend crazy money here, there and everywhere.
Another issue is that we need someone to boost this seasons title challenge, and some reports are suggesting that he is out injured until March with a ruptured tendon.
So signing him, especially for that money, makes no sense whatsoever.
Also, you have the fact that the “expert” where this story originated from was the same person who said Gonzalo Higuain was “definitely” going to Arsenal. Not just a maybe, but 100% signing for Arsenal in the summer. He then promptly signed for Napoli instead.
Whenever the transfer windows open we always get these crazy rumours that have no substance.
I can see Arsenal spending around £12-£15 million on a new addition this January, not something mental like £37 million. We haven’t just turned into Chelsea or Manchester City.
