Arsenal fans got themselves excited after Julian Draxler posted a picture of Sead Kolašinac’s Arsenal shirt on Instagram.
As with every transfer window for the last few years, Julian Draxler was linked with Arsenal over the summer which got some fans excited and had others rolling their eyes.
So when Draxler posted a picture of Arsenal left-back Kolašinac’s shirt on Instagram, the Gunners’ fans were understandably excited.

Of course, the most likely reason for the post is that Kolašinac sent his old Schalke teammate one of his shirts as a gift, since the pair still seem to be good friends.
But that didn’t stop supporters from acting as if the German forward had logged onto Arsenal Direct to buy the shirt of his next club, reports Sports Illustrated.

I seriously think Draxler will come to Arsenal while Sanchez will go to PSG.

Draxler has increased competition for places at PSG, now that the club from the French capital have Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, Edinson Cavani, Lucas Moura and Angel Di Maria.
However, he seems to have retained a place ahead of Di Maria and Lucas Moura for the time being, which is a promising sign for his career in Ligue 1, and a worrying one for those who want him in North London.
Hopefully that changes before January.
