Gab Marcotti doesn’t think Arsenal will be signing Julian Draxler in January [ESPN FC]

The Julian Draxler to Arsenal saga has got a little curious and despite the fact the Gunners do need reinforcements up front, it is beginning to seem like the Schalke playmaker won’t be coming in January.

Yesterday, Schalke admitted they had not received any bids so far this transfer window for the supposed Arsenal target.

And, whilst Per Mertesacker said he is “curious” to see the Draxler saga unfold (“We already have a little German academy here”), at the moment no move seems forthcoming.

As Gab Marcotti details on the video above – all the noise is coming from Germany and why aren’t other big clubs interested in Draxler, who is undoubtedly talented and has a 45 million euro release clause?
