Arsenal Closing in to Seal Brilliant Double Signing: No Benzema

Arsenal FCOver the past few weeks, Karim Benzema has been the main player to be linked with a move to Arsenal Football Club.

The latest reports now link two more quality players with the Gunners in the form of Grzegorz Krychowiak of Sevilla and Julian Draxler of Schalke.

According to Daily Telegraph, Arsenal scouts were present at last night’s UEFA Super Cup contest to watch the Polish star and the North Londoners are now weighing up a 22 million pounds bid to secure his services.

The 25-year-old defensive midfielder was ever present for the La Liga side last season and featured in 47 games for the club.

On the other hand, Metro cite reports in Italy claiming that Arsenal are making a 21.1 million bid for the German international Julian Draxler after hijacking Juve’s deal.

The 21-year-old World Cup winner was mostly on the injury table last season and could only feature in 15 league games for Schalke.

In your Opinion, should Arsenal splash the cash for the mentioned duo or must focus on signing Benzema instead?

    I wouldn’t get too excited here. Look at Krychowiak’s skills video on Youtube. I know that’s not a great way of assessing anyone but he doesn’t appear to be the ball winning MF general we’ve been looking for. His feet are slow, his passing too deliberate, and his tackling isn’t particularly strong. As for Draxler – it would be more interesting if the story came from any other source than the metro. They’ve linked us with just about everyone in the football world – except Cech.

    Bonaroca:- I saw the Polish player playing in the Final against Barca. I reckon there are better MF then him
    most of them better then him. I hope this is not a panic buying to calm the supporters. As regards Draxler
    I can’t comment as I don’t follow German Soccer.
