Here we go again!

In a remix of many transfer windows before, rumours have popped up Thursday that Arsenal are to offer Wolfsburg €50m for Julian Draxler.

Draxler, 22, is currently playing at Euro 2016 with the German national team.

Moreover, he’s under contract at German club Wolfsburg until 2020.

ESPN graphic goes viral

The claim that Draxler could move to Arsenal has been borne out from one screenshot from ESPN.

It’s unclear where ESPN have got their information from, and there doesn’t seem to be any corroborating evidence supporting the transfer story.

Nevertheless, it’s easy to understand why the screenshot has got Arsenal fans excited.

The Gunners are searching for a new striker ahead of the new season, with few supporters believing their side can win any significant silverware with just Olivier Giroud as the main forward at the club.

For the record, while Draxler is a forward, he isn’t a front-line striker but more of a supporting aid.
