The Gunners have long been linked with a move for the immensely gifted 21-year-old, who was part of Germany’s World Cup-winning squad this summer.
With Arsene Wenger unsatisfied with the likes of Tomas Rosicky, Joel Campbell and Podolski in his attacking midfield options, the Frenchman could now offer the latter as part of the deal to bring Draxler to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal will also offer around £30m in cash, though it is not certain that this will prove enough to persuade the Bundesliga side to let their star player go, with the youngster previously being valued at around £40m.
