Insider delivers Julian Draxler update which will please Arsenal fans

Julian Draxlier is keen on a transfer to Arsenal this summer, according to Emanuele Giulianelli

Julian Draxler is still keen on a transfer to Arsenal this summer and Arsene Wenger remains hopeful of pushing through a deal to sign the striker, according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.

Arsenal have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks as Wenger looks to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

The north London side have thus far only signed midfielder Granit Xhaka and striker Takuma Asano this summer despite all of the speculation.

Draxler has been touted as a possible target for Wenger as the Frenchman looks to add more firepower to his squad at The Emirates.

Now, Italian journalist Giulianelli is claiming that Arsenal are willing to pay up to £50m to land the playmaker this summer, although Wolfsburg are reluctant to sell the Germany international.

Arsenal finished in second place in the Premier League table last season, 10 points behind champions Leicester City as they were forced to settle for a trophyless campaign under Wenger.

The Gunners kick off the new Premier League season with a home clash against Liverpool on 14 August.
