Draxler Puts Arsenal On Red Alert By Accentuating Wish To Leave Wolfsburg In January

Julian Draxler revealed that he wants to make a switch to Premier League.

DraxlerThe long-time Arsenal target alerted the Premier League clubs about his desire to switch sides after being booed by home fans when he came in as a substitute in Wolfsburg’s 3-2 home defeat to Hertha Berlin.

And the forward was quick to announce that he wants to move away as soon as possible.

Earlier in the summer, Draxler insisted that he wanted to leave Wolfsburg but the German club were not willing to let him go and blocked his move.

“There’s no doubt it makes it hard for you to perform on the field.

“I can understand the fans, though.

“They have every right to do that. I said in the summer the way I feel and I stand by that.”

Draxler joined Wolfsburg from Schalke in 2015 for£25m and was in good shape last season with 9 goals to his name in 34 appearances before delivering back-to-back good performances for Germany in Euro 2016 this summer.

But Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs accentuated that the club would not offload Draxler in the January transfer window.

“It was catastrophic for the player.”

“But it is wrong to think we are looking to sell him. We are not planning to sell anyone.”

“The most important thing is that the impression that Julian wants out disappears.”

“There is absolutely no reason to even talk about Julian leaving in January.”

“I am convinced Julian will not repeat his comments from last summer.”
