Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has talked up a few players whom he may be pursuing in the summer transfer window following Jamie Vardy's possible decision to stay at Leicester City. The Gunners had triggered his release clause but the 29-year-old is believed to have had a change of heart and wants to extend his stay with the Foxes with whom he won the Premier League title last season.
One player that has caught the eye of Wenger is Julian Draxler, who was heavily linked with a move to the Gunners a few seasons back before they signed Mesut Ozil. The German is currently playing for Wolfsburg and as a left winger for the Germany national team at the European Championships in France.
The Frenchman also believes that the best young talent in the market right now comes from France with the likes of Anthony Martial, Kingsley Coman and others making the grade in major leagues across the world. While Martial signed for a major fee at Manchester United and gave a good account of himself in the Premier League last season, Coman was brilliant for Bayern Munich and has proved that he deserves a spot in the starting XI.
The Gunners on the other hand are looking at other possible targets following Vardy's possible retraction from moving to the Emirates. The north London club are also in the market for Lille forward Sofiane Boufal, who has had a breakthrough season in Ligue 1. Meanwhile, the Gunners manager has stated that he is in the market for two more players.
"At the moment I think most of the young talented players are in France," Wenger said, as quoted by the Metro. "We speak about (Anthony) Martial, we speak about (Kingsley) Coman, who are still about 20. And I've seen a very interesting young talent from Turkey – (Emre) Mor.
"You have as well some other players like (Leroy) Sane in Germany. It will be very interesting as well to follow what Draxler is doing, he's still a very young player."
