According to a report in the Independent, Everton are interested in signing Julian Draxler from Wolfsburg.

Draxler has confirmed that he would like to leave Wolfsburg this summer, with Arsenal considered his most likely destination to date.

However, the Gunners are said to be reluctant to pay Wolfsburg’s asking price for the attacking midfielder, and Everton now believe a deal may be possible.

Farhad Moshiri’s investment in Everton has given Ronald Koeman masses of funds to spend this summer, and Draxler being targeted shows the Merseyside club’s ambition.

Convincing the German international to move to Goodison Park could be tough, but Everton are supposedly willing to try.

Draxler could cost around £60 million, which would make him Everton’s most expensive signing ever by a considerable distance.

Everton have made two additions so far this summer, with Maarten Stekeleburg and Idrissa Gueye signing.
