Arsenal and Liverpool are both being delayed by Juventus in their bids to sign their top targets from Germany this summer.
It is reported by SportMediaset that Juve are delaying closing a deal for Julian Draxler, as they are still waiting for an answer from Mario Gotze, according to Football Italia.
It was claimed that Bayern Munich had agreed to allow their forward to leave on an initial loan deal with an obligation to buy, although there was uncertainty from Gotze himself over the switch.
While the two clubs waited for his decision, the Bianconeri were busy elsewhere in the market by agreeing a deal with Draxler. However, they are yet to agree a fee with Schalke for the talented youngster.
As a result, it is still unclear as to where Juve will go this summer for their primary target in the transfer market, and that makes life confusing for both Arsenal and Liverpool.
It has been widely reported that the Gunners have been tracking Draxler for some time, while Liverpool have been linked with a move for Gotze this summer along with a whole host of other clubs around Europe.
