Arsenal have the history of being linked with the transfer of top-notch players in the transfer market but somehow, the transfer targets end up lacing their boots for other Clubs.
Wenger has been blameworthy of frugality which has seen them missed their targets. Players like Eden Hazard, N’golo Kante, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Gonzalo Higuain and their likes have been at one time in their career linked with a move to Arsenal but they ended up playing for other clubs.
After being consistently linked with a move to Arsenal and Liverpool, Julian Draxler made a move to Parc des Princes with Paris Saint Germain in January and he has revealed that his move to France was born out of his love for his Club not money, reports BBC.
Having said that, there is no way Arsenal would have offered the right price for him without him completing an Emirates move. The modern transfer market is ruled with money and Wenger is no fan of spending big in the transfer market.
Draxler wanted out of Wolfsburg since last summer and it was thought that he’d end up in Arsenal as the Gunners have been linked with the star player since the penultimate season. However, he has played down his reason for opting a move to PSG against Arsenal and Liverpool.
‘You know we have been in talks with some clubs in England as well, but this time I decided to make the decision as to what I feel and what I prefer for myself,’ he told the BBC.
‘There were some teams that wanted me from the Premier League but it was not like it was very, very close.
‘Football is about making decisions and that’s what I did. I decided that PSG is the best club for me at the moment.
‘It’s not about Jurgen Klopp, about Liverpool or about different clubs from England.
‘It was just my opinion that I am the best player for PSG at the moment – so that’s what I decided.
‘I chose a great new step in my career because PSG is a really, really great club . They have big goals, they want to reach big things and that’s why I want to be part of it.
‘I did not – and will not – decide my club just for the money.’
Another summer transfer window is in the offing and we’ll be hoping that Wenger spends big and right this time to remedy is shambolic and mediocre team.
