3 Clubs that should sign Draxler – Arsenal, Liverpool, And Tottenham
Just barely a year after completing a big-money move to Wolfsburg, Julian Draxler is all set to leave the Bundesliga club this season. The German star has been linked with a move to many clubs and it does come as a surprise for the fact that the youngster had just moved to his new club. He openly revolted against his current club and gave an explosive interview where he expressed his desire to leave the German club.
‘I expressed myself clearly after the Euros, with coach Dieter Hecking, that I want to leave Wolfsburg. The coach has known for more than three weeks.
‘Two days after the semi-final defeat to France at the European Championships, I told him how I see the whole situation and what I want, which is to leave the club.’
Whatever does happen, Draxler is one of the best in the world but his growth has stagnated a bit and he does need to play more and learn more if does want to become one of the world’s best. The talent is there but for some reason, he cannot affect game as much as the likes of Leroy Sane or even Mario Gotze to an extent.
He needs to gain experience and maybe a move to a Premier League club could give him the confidence needed to become what he potentially could be, a superstar. Here are three Premier League clubs that should answer his “get me” plea.
The most obvious club to save him from the torment that is Wolfsburg. Arsenal have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old German and it is a surprise he has not joined his other national side teammates Per Mertesacker and Mesut Ozil.
Draxler would provide Arsenal with a great option to use upfront and would also solve the dilemma of playing Theo Walcott in the side. The German might be a little pricey given Wolfsburg’s transfer dealings but Arsene Wenger is the man who can save Draxler and maybe give him another lease on life this season.
There are many other clubs who can break the bank and sign a player of Draxler’s ability and it would be a good match for the playmaker as well if he does move to the Emirates.
While having a Frenchman in charge is not a bad thing, there is nothing better than having a German on your side. Liverpool look like a Jurgen Klopp team but the side could use a bit of a spark and that is exactly what Draxler can provide to this team.
Liverpool have looked short of attacking quality last season and even at the start of preseason and bringing in the 22-year-old would certainly pay dividends. Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool will not pay over the odds to bring Draxler in but the fact the German does want to leave the club does put the Premier League side in a better position to make a bid.
This would mean that Liverpool would need to sell someone for a lot of money and all eyes fall on Christian Benteke who is set to leave Liverpool for Crystal Palace this season for a deal rumoured to be close to £32 million.
Tottenham have been one of those surprise sides but the Premier League club haven’t really brought a lot of options into their team when it comes to the attack. Sure they have Vincent Janssen but where is the cover for the likes of Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli?
Spurs do have the money to spend on a big name player and Julian Draxler does fit the bill for the side. He does need some time to get used to the whole “Mauricio Pochettino” bit and style of play but the German is a professional and shouldn’t have to worry too much about it.
Draxler probably does not want to stay in Germany even and a move to the Premier League is imminent, the question is which club is willing to break the bank for the talented player?
