Julian Draxler will definitely be leaving Wolfsburg at the end of the season, according to his agent Fabio Parisi.
The talented youngster has been linked with a move to Premier League giants Arsenal since he was a fresh faced 18-year-old at Bundesliga club Schalke, but a move to the Emirates never materialised for the German. He ended up moving to Wolfsburg for a club record fee of £25.5m on the transfer deadline day in the summer of 2015.
Despite only being at Wolfsburg for a year, Draxler was already trying to force a move away, and was reportedly courted by Juventus and PSG, with the latter apparently offering £59 million for his services. He ended up remaining at the club, but Parisi has now confirmed that the 23-year-old will definitely be leaving at the end of the season.
He also revealed that Juventus manager Allegri had spoken to Draxler, and the pair were immediately ‘in sync’. However, the agent refused to confirm that his client would definitely end up at the Turin club.
He said: “Max Allegri had spoken to Draxler, they were in sync and there was an immediate rapport between them.
“Wolfsburg have strong owners, but unfortunately for the German fans, everyone wants to leave there. Over the summer Draxler was on the verge of joining PSG, who had offered nearly £59m.
“He will definitely leave Wolfsburg at the end of the season. He would’ve gladly run to join Juve and is the ideal trequartista for Allegri.
“I repeat: Draxler will leave, but whether or not Juventus are interested again is another matter.”
This could now lead to the Gunners reviving their interest in the midfielder, and a Premier League switch does not look unlikely for the German. Draxler has also been linked with a move to Everton, with the Toffees showing serious interest in the youngster.
He has made a decent start to the season, playing 6 times for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga so far.
