Germany international target Julian Draxler has continued to distance himself from his current club Wolfsburg by reaffirming his desire to leave.
The 23-year-old was booed by his own fans when he came off the bench during a defeat to Hertha Berlin and confirmed his desire to leave after the game.
Speaking after the loss, Draxler told reporters via the Daily Mirror:
“I don’t think I need to tell anybody what [being booed] does to a person – it certainly doesn’t help you.
“There’s no doubt it makes it hard for you to perform on the field.
“I can understand the fans, though. They have every right to do that. I said in the summer the way I feel and I stand by that.”
The World Cup winner was keen to leave the Bundesliga club in the summer but was blocked from a move and has persisted with his desire to leave ever since.
The former Schalke man is, however, yet to score for Wolfsburg this season in 12 appearances which hasn’t helped the German side’s league struggles, who sit 15th.
With Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reportedly looking to add to his attacking options in the January window, the attacking midfielder could finally get his wish.
