Arsenal Transfer Target Deletes Scathing Tweets Calling Arsene Wenger A 'French F.k'. But Arsenal fans have gone back through his Twitter and found a number of unsavoury comments about.
What's the latest transfer news involving Draxler?
Draxler claimed that he was 'a little homesick' last month, appearing to signal that a return to the Bundesliga was on the cards. His management team are understood to have reached out to Bayern Munich recently.
However, this has not put Arsenal off monitoring the attacker, and he is believed to be on their list of possible targets ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

How much is Draxler worth and when does his contract expire?
The 27-year-old signed for PSG from Wolfsburg in 2017 for £32.4m. The French champions are in danger of not receiving any fee in the coming months, though, as Draxler is out of contract in June. At this point, he will become a free agent.
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino reportedly rates Draxler highly, but this will not be enough on its own to keep the German international, who is said to not be making progress in his contract negotiations with the club.
What are Draxler's stats this season?
Draxler has made 20 appearances for PSG this term in Ligue 1, and been directly involved in six goals (via WhoScored). Alexandre Lacazette (15), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (10) and Bukayo Saka (7) are the only Arsenal players who have contributed to more league goals in 2020/21.
He has also completed 27 key passes - only Saka (33) and Kieran Tierney (29) have managed more for Mikel Arteta's men this year.
What has been said about Draxler?
Whilst he may not be an ever-present in the PSG side, Draxler is still highly-rated by his national team coach, Joachim Low.
Back in October, Low handed Draxler the captain's armband for Germany, and hinted that the winger is too good to just be sitting on the bench at club level.
As quoted by BuliNews, Low said: 'He has so much talent and quality, he needs to be playing regularly. He will lead the team out as captain tomorrow.'
Is the timing right for Arsenal?
Draxler has been linked with a move to Arsenal for some time now. Back in 2014, Arsene Wenger tried to sign him, but the Gunners failed to pull off the move in the end.
Had he arrived at that point, Arsenal would have been getting a young, hungry player, desperate to prove himself in the Premier League. Now, the question has to be asked: does he still have the same desire?
He has already achieved so much in the game, having won three league titles with PSG and, of course, lifted the World Cup seven years ago.
His career seems to have stagnated in recent years, and there must be doubts over whether he can reach the heights that he did in his younger years.
Arsenal have developed youngsters well over the past 12 months, with Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe making an impact in the first team. Perhaps they should continue with this policy, rather than taking a gamble on a player who has struggled to produce the goods consistently this season.News Now - Sport News
Arsenal are keeping tabs on Nabil Fekir as a possible alternative to Martin Odegaard this summer.
The Gunners have been long-term admirers of the France international, and were interested in him before he moved from Lyon to Real Betis in 2019.
Fekir has spent the past two years in Spain and remains on the radar of Arsenal, who will be looking to bring in another attacking midfielder in the summer.
What’s the situation?
Arsenal’s primary focus at the end of the season will be to try and find a way of keeping Odegaard, who is due to go back to Real Madrid once his loan deal expires.
The north London club do not have a clause in the deal which would allow them to make the Norway international’s move but permanent, but have agreed with Madrid to discuss the situation in the summer.
Ideally, Arsenal would like to sign the 23-year-old on a permanent basis, but it is currently unclear whether Madrid would be open to that or whether Arsenal would even have the funds to do a deal.
Another season-long loan could be an option, but Goal can confirm that Arsenal are looking at Fekir as an alternative and have been keeping close tabs on him during his time with Betis in Spain.
How much would Fekir cost?
The 27-year-old has two years remaining on his contract at Betis and has a £77 million ($106m/€90m) release clause.

That is not a figure Arsenal would go anywhere near, however, nor is it what the Spanish club would demand.
Betis have to sell some players this summer due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic and Goal has learnt they would be looking for around £26m ($36m/€30m) to part with Fekir, who has recently switched agents ahead of a potential move this summer.

How has Fekir performed in Spain?
After failing to land his move to Liverpool in 2018, Fekir eventually left Lyon to join Betis the following summer.
He ended his first season in Spain with seven goals and four assists from 31 appearances and has netted three times so far this season in all competitions, adding a further five assists for Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
