Arsenal now 2/1 to bring in Draxler
It is no secret that Premier League leaders Arsenal are interested in signing Schalke star Julian Draxler and the Gunners are now a best price of just 2/1 to bring in the German youngster during the current transfer window.
It would represent the second stellar piece of business from Arsene Wenger this season after signing Mesut Ozil in the summer for over £40million as Draxler’s release clause is set at £35m and Arsenal will have to meet that to secure his signature.
There is clearly some doubt as to whether the Gunners will do this, especially as the 20-year-old has just been ruled out till March with a tendon injury, but it is certainly seen as a possibility with Bet Victor making the January move a best price of 2/1.
It does appear that if the attacking talent is to leave Gelsenkirchen it would be for the Emirates as the next in line in the betting is Bayern Munich who are all the way out at 15/2 with Sky Bet to bring him in this January.
The consensus amongst fans seems to be that if Arsenal are to strengthen then it may be a traditional centre-forward that they need rather than another attacking midfielder. Alvaro Morata of Real Madrid continues to be the man linked with a January switch to North London to fill that role and he is now just 4/5 with Bet Victor to complete that move.
