Pochettino ‘will let’ Julian Draxler sign with Arsenal in return for gifted midfielder
It is understood Mauricio Pochettino is prepared to let Julian Draxler join Arsenal if he can land Matteo Guendouzi.
Guendouzi has been frozen out at Arsenal by Mikel Arteta since allegedly boasting about his wages to Brighton striker Neal Maupay during a 2-1 loss last June, and the midfielder’s attitude was called into question once more when he was seen arguing with Hertha Berlin teammate Matheus Cunha at half-time of a 3-0 defeat to Hoffenheim last week.
It is believed that Mikel Arteta has now plans to bring the young man back to the club and will look to get him off the books in the summer transfer window on a more permanent transfer basis.
And now reports in France claim PSG are set to reignite their interest in Guendouzi, who spent nine years in their academy, as The Ligue 1 champions are reportedly ready to take him back to the club in the summer
They reportedly wanted to sign him before he joined Arsenal for £7million from Lorient in 2018, and with reports suggesting that Julian Draxler is no longer needed at the club, they are prepared to offer the German to Arsenal in hope of sealing a deal for Guendouzi
Draxler has been linked with a move to Arsenal for many seasons now, but a move to the Emirates has never happened as the Gunners hierarchy are not prepared to pay the big money to get a transfer deal done
Look, Guendouzi is a player that is no longer wanted at the Emirates, so if Arsenal really wants to sign Draxler, this is the clubs perfect chance to get him for a smaller fee.
However, whether he would be a good signing for the club these days is another matter
