Arsene Wenger has come out and said the following about Julian Draxler:
“The Draxler situation has been created by the newspapers, not by me. He will stay at Schalke.”
Yesterday I posted how Julian Draxler would never join Arsenal, and how there are so many reasons why the transfer itself makes no sense.
But someone we have been linked with is 31 year old Sweden International Kim Kallstrom, who currently plays for Spartak Moscow.
The theory is that he would provide midfield cover for the injured Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere. Also, we have Mathieu Flamini out suspended as well so in terms of proper midfielders, we are a little short.
What do you think of this signing if it comes off?
Is it the signing we need? I suppose it’s a sensible move and it would a loan deal until the end of the season.
I haven’t seen a huge amount of him to make a judgement, but he seems to perform well when playing for Sweden.
Will it happen? I guess only time will tell.
