3 Julian Draxler Alternatives For Arsenal To Look Into

Arsenal’s move for Schalke sensation Julian Draxler has been dealt a double blow- Draxler has been injured and while that may not deter the Gunners, cross-town rivals Tottenham could scupper Draxler’s Arsenal transfer by holding up Lewis Holtby deal. However, Arsenal can look towards the market at these three alternatives to the explosive German.

3. Sebastian Giovinco (Juventus)

Italy

A report in the Express suggests that Arsenal have held preliminary talks with Juventus over a move for Sebastian Giovinco who has been on Arsenal’s radar for some time. There are suggestions that the Gunners have already spoken with the player’s agent, Andrea D’Amico about a possible loan move, with Juventus reluctant to sanction a permanent deal. Giovinco is keen to boost his playing time ahead of the World Cup and a loan deal would suit both parties just fine.

Giovinco has the potential to be a great fit at Arsenal, as we discussed last week, and his versatility in attack would gel nicely with Arsenal’s fluid approach. Giovinco has both created and scored goals during his time at both Juventus and at Parma on loan and for a versatile attacker of his ilk, he does possess a decent strike rate. The short term deal would allow Arsenal to look at Draxler once he is fit and the market is more open in the summer, besides a forward is what Arsenal are in dire need of than Julian Draxler.
