Tottenham Hotspur should move for the want-away German international.
“The situation with me is that I made it clear to Dieter Hecking after we were knocked out of Euro 2016 in the semi-final that I would like to leave Wolfsburg,” the German international said.
“The coach has known about this for three weeks.”
Following those comments it was no surprise to see Arsenal once again linked with the 22-year-old, but one of HITC’s readers, going by the name of Shelf-Side, made a great call on Wednesday, suggesting Tottenham should make a move for the want-away star.
Spurs have strengthened their squad with the signings of Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen already this summer, but bringing Draxler to White Hart Lane would be a superb piece of business; one that would not only trump their North London rivals but also significantly strengthen their already impressive squad.
Draxler would not come cheap, and some Tottenham fans may dismiss the suggestion out of hand due to the sheer amount of cash it would take to sign the player, but the funds are there; the question is, would the Spurs hierarchy sanction another big-money move after being burned in the past?
The German international is predominantly an attacking midfielder who can also operate on either wing, and his innate talent would go down a storm at Tottenham.
Having voiced his intention to leave Wolfsburg this summer, now is the time for Spurs to make a move.
They could even offer Heung-Min Son in a part-exchange deal if a straight cash move proves impossible. After all, the South Korea international is a former Bundesliga favourite from his time at Bayer Leverkusen and Hamburg.
But perhaps the best option would be to keep one and get the other. Football is awash with money these days, and if Tottenham want to spend it wisely a move for Draxler could define far more than a single season.
