Julian Draxler next club odds - Arsenal in the race for Wolfsburg ace

Wed, 31 August 2016, 6:47

Paris Saint-Germain are upping the ante in their pursuit of Wolfsburg’s Julian Draxler ahead of a big-money move for the winger, just a year after he transferred to the Volkswagen Arena.

What Are The Odds has the latest on just where Draxler might end up this season, per BetVictor, with PSG leading the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Juventus by a massive margin.

The reigning Ligue 1 champions have been shortened to evens (2.00) after the Sun reported Unai Emery’s side were ready to launch a £64 million manoeuvre in order to land their target.

That jump represents a massive leap in the odds from the French giants, who were listed at 20/1 this time three weeks ago, but have all of a sudden surged among Draxler’s suitors following an apparent change in their opinion of the playmaker.

Arsenal were the frontrunners to sign Draxler in early August, priced at 13/8 (2.63), having already formed a stable of Germans in recent years, including Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker, Serge Gnabry and departed Lukas Podolski.

However, a move to the Premier League and the Emirates Stadium now looks highly unlikely after Arsene Wenger’s side fell to 20/1 (21.00) in the market, having splurged around £50 million on Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez in the past week already.

From there, it’s a melee between some of Europe’s biggest powerhouses, with Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus, Chelsea, AC Milan, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur each priced at 25/1 (26.00) to sign Draxler before September 3rd.

Los Blancos hardly need more wingers, although Jese Rodriguez’s summer move to Paris means manager Zinedine Zidane could be in need of more wide talent if James Rodriguez happens to complete a sudden move away from the club.

Unfortunately for Liverpool and Milan, they can’t offer much of the upgrade Draxler desires in his search for Champions League football, while Tottenham’s usual spending patterns suggest the transfer may be out of their depth.
