Arsenal target Julian Draxler should be recovered from injury in seven days time to resume playing for Schalke. But before that happens, will Arsenal or another club in Europe sign the highly-rated attacking midfielder?

Arsenal are understood to have had discussions with Schalke regarding a deal for Draxler, but details and evidence is few and far between.

In the meantime, the Gunners are interested in signing Cristian Tello on loan from Barcelona now that Aaron Ramsey is back on the injury list.

    Watched several scouting videos on this kid… impressive, and I think he’d be a great fit for the Gunners. My understanding is that with his injury he’s not going to have an immediate impact, but a great prospect for the coming years. Let’s hope it happens.

    Heal quickly Ramsey, Wilshire, and so on… it’s going to be down to the wire this season. Crowded at the top.

      another trophy-less season for Arsenal is more likely. City will win the league and FA cup. Arsenal out of league cup and surely no chance in Champions League.

      • hoosiergunner says:

        Indeed. Man City is a true beast… they possess enough quality and depth to field multiple teams that would fill up the top four.

        If they win it will be well deserved (I appreciate their embrace of dynamic soccer), but for now I’m holding out hope.

      Youtube can make any player look good..

        Also a fair point, but my ability to hop the pond to check him out in person has been a bit limited. You work with what you have when you want to learn about someone or something.

          I’ve watched every game he’s played for Schalke. He’s pretty damn good. Can’t carry a game like Farfan or KPB can, but he’s young yet. It’ll come. Hate to lose him, but the Koenigsblauen can use the money and we’ve still got Meyer and Goretzka coming up. We’re OK in the midfield, we need that money for a goalkeeper, a central defender and a second striker!

          Wenger will do wonders with the kid if this happens.

    Cristian Tello would be nice too. He’s got great bursts of speed and blows by defenders often.

    Not going to happen
