Arsene Wenger denies Julian Draxler transfer agreement

Arsene Wenger says that it is "an illusion" to think that a deal has been agreed for the signature of Julian Draxler.

Arsene Wenger has said that Arsenal have not agreed a deal to sign Julian Draxler from Schalke 04, despite earlier reports suggesting that they had concluded negotiations.

Footballer-turned-journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft announced through his Twitter account that the deal had been agreed on Friday evening, but Wenger says that is not correct.

"That is an illusion. There is nothing happening, honestly no. We don't need to take players on the flanks - we have 17 players on the flanks," Wenger told Sky Sports News after the 4-0 win against Coventry City in the FA Cup.

Reports have claimed that Draxler has a buy-out clause in his contract of around £35m.
