Transfer Balls: Julian Draxler To Arsenal When The Question Marks Are Answered

TRANSFER Balls: a look at rumour and nonsense reported as fact in the mainstream media.

The Daily Mirror does at it must and presnts a non-news story as a question:

Arsenal to pay Julian Draxler’s £37m release clause?

The entire story – as picked up by Google News –  is this:

Arsenal may pay Julian Draxler’s £37million release clause in January as they look for cover for the injured Mesut Ozil. (Express)

So. The Mirror takes a non-story from the Express and then fails to even link to it.

Modern journalism really is that reduced.

But let’s see what the Express has to say:

Arsenal look to £37m Julian Draxler as Mesut Ozil replacement – ARSENAL will match Julian Draxler’s £37million Schalke release clause after growing frustrated with club-record signing Mesut Ozil.

Facts.

Anthony Chapman then adds:

…Wenger is finally ready to move for Draxler in order to revive his injury-hit squad.

Number of words from Wenger: nil.

But lest we think the Express the shining knioght onm this Balls, this is what the apper reported earlier:
