TRANSFER Ball: Arsenal have been linked to just 33 players this transfer season. The latest name the media experts have pulled from Wenger’s magic hat is that of Julian Draxler:

Fanatix: “Arsenal submit £26m plus Lukas Podolski bid for German prodigy Julian Draxler”

(Arsenal bought Poldi for a £10.9 million.)

Sunday Times: “Arsène Wenger… is now trying to reach agreement with Schalke for their midfield starlet Julian Draxler. Schalke, however, want £38.4m for the 19-year-old.”

IBT: “Arsenal are preparing a £40m bid for Schalke 04 midfielder Julian Draxler, according to the Mirror”

Telegraph: “Draxler, a 19-year-old Germany international midfielder, would be the priority but Schalke are reluctant sellers and would only consider an offer in excess of £40m”

Express: “Schalke slap £60m price tag on Chelsea target Julian Draxler”

More facts just as soon as Arsenal let the trusty media know what they are…
