According to Sky Sports, Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is struggling to be fit for Germany’s World Cup opener on June 17th against Mexico after picking up a knee injury in a friendly game against Austria last weekend.

The attacking midfielder scored in the 2-1 win over their neighbours. However, he was substituted on 76 minutes. Ozil has been training away from his Die Mannschaft teammates and missed Tuesday media day.

Reportedly, the 29-year-old is also still suffering from a long-standing back problem that saw him miss games for Arsenal last season.

Exclusive reports from the Daily Star have it that Premier League rivals Arsenal and Liverpool are currently locked in a battle for the signature of Mexico winger Hirving Lozano.

The 22-year-old PSV star bagged 10 goals in 15 appearances for PSV Eindhoven this season and is having a host of Europe’s biggest clubs on red alert thanks to a string of impressive performances for the Dutch side.

Arsenal have recently been linked with a move for the Mexico international but the latest reports have it that Jurgen Klopp has also joined the race. The Star claim there could be a ‘bidding war’ between the two Premier League clubs ahead of the January transfer market.

Arsenal open talks with Paris Saint-Germain over HUGE January deal 0

Reports in France are spreading a huge transfer story that involves Arsenal and one of Paris Saint-Germain’s biggest stars Julian Draxler.

Gunners have long been linked with the German international who has thus far been rewarded with only seven Ligue 1 games this season. Arsene Wenger have been keeping the German international in his sight since his early days and the French tactician is a known admirer of his talents.

Draxler is said to be desperately looking for regular football in order to polish his form ahead of the next summer’s World Cup in Russia and it is French media outlet L’Equipe who claim that a number of Europe’s clubs – including Arsenal – are monitoring the situation.

Could Sanchez-Draxler January swap deal be on? 0

Posted on October 04, 2017 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are looking to swap wantaway Alexis Sanchez with PSG’s Julian Draxler in January. Sanchez is of course out of contract next summer and is not signing a new deal with the Gunners.

Meanwhile, Germany international Julian Draxler has found himself out of favour in Paris after the summer arrivals Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, two of the most highly-rated attacking players in Europe.

This deal would make financial sense

If we are looking at this from a purely financial sense, it would be a good deal. Arsenal will receive absolutely nothing if Sanchez leaves in the summer and it would take mega money to replace the Chilean.

Paris Saint-Germain will be snubbing all interest in forward Julian Draxler to ensure the 23-year-old stays in France, says Germany manager Joachim Low, reports Football.London.

Draxler has been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer after reports he was seeking an exit from the Parc des Princes. But Low believes PSG are desperate to keep him and won’t let him leave.

“I know for a fact that Paris don’t want to sell him. They are convinced of his outstanding qualities. He made such a big step forward there. I am convinced that he will come out on top at Paris. By now, he’s already playing a big role for us,” he said.

Manchester United and Liverpool also keen on Paris Saint-Germain’s Julian Draxler 0

According to the Mirror, Manchester United and Liverpool have joined Arsenal in the race for Paris Saint-Germain and Germany forward Julian Draxler. The 23-year-old has told the Ligue 1 side he wants to leave this summer and has a host of clubs reportedly interested in his services.

Arsenal have been linked with the forward for some time, although manager Arsene Wenger recently admitted he has a task to trim the playing squad rather than add to it. The Gunners are overstocked, with 33 players competing for 25 first-team spots, so it’s more likely they will be making sales than bringing in more players this summer.

The right time for Arsenal to move for Julian Draxler 0

Arsenal have been consistently linked with a move for PSG and Germany attacking midfielder Julian Draxler. However, despite the constant links the attacking midfielder has eluded the Gunners grasp in recent seasons.

Maybe now is the ideal time for the club from north London to make a move for the undoubtedly talented playmaker.

Down the pecking order in Paris

Draxler joined PSG in January from Wolfsburg and enjoyed a decent first half a season in the French capital. He made 17 Ligue One appearances, scoring four times and producing one assist. The playmaker also played twice for PSG in the Champions League and scored against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are monitoring the situation of PSG attacking midfielder Lucas Moura, with the futures of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in doubt at the north London club.

In fact, the Star even claims that the Gunners have held talks with the French club about the availability of Moura. The club from the French capital are believed to have stated that Brazilian is currently not for sale.

Moura has hit form this season

Moura has taken awhile to find his feet in European football since his £38million move from Sao Paulo in 2012. He has produced flashes of his ability in previous campaigns, but he has failed to find consistency.

The highly rated attacking midfielder has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium on numerous occasions in the past. Draxler is desperate to leave the struggling Bundesliga outfit in January. He stated his desire to leave in the summer but was denied a move. It seems doubtful he will be in January.

Why Arsenal need to sign a creative attacking player in January 0

Posted on December 22, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has played down talk of spending big in January, having long suggested the preferred targets are seldom available in the winter window, despite their existing wingers looking bereft of the required quality for a genuine challenge for the Premier League crown.

The Gunners’ title-hopes have taken a big hit following a recent dip in form, and there are some startling statistics from their existing wingers which suggests Wenger desperately needs to bring in a new face. Alexis Sanchez (44) and Mesut Ozil (38) lead the squad charts for chances created, but the chasing pack haven’t even managed half of Ozil’s tally – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (15).
