Arsenal possible line-up with Julian Draxler and other signings

There are various reports on the media linking Arsenal with Wolfsburg’s attacking midfielder, Julian Draxler, and the club are reportedly set to pay £43m for the Germany international.

The Wolfsburg attacking midfielder, who played in Euro 2016 as Germany were knocked out by France by 2-0 in the semi-final, is now set to discuss his future with the club.

However, if the north London club succeed in the signing of Draxler, he would add some serious firepower to Arsenal's attack and his new team-mates should be pleased to have him on board.

Here is a possible Arsenal starting line up next season featuring Draxler:

Beginning in goal with Cech, the 34-year-old Czech international is certain to keep his place in the Arsenal squad next season as the man between the sticks.

At the right back, Arsenal will feature Hector Bellerin, who according to reports from the Sun earlier this month was linked with a move to Barcelona after the La Liga giants sold Dani Alves. Barca are keen on Bellerin as a replacement, but the Spaniard looks like he is staying put.

At right centre back, it's Per Mertesacker. However, the German doesn’t look like he will be able to make this position his own for too much longer due to his age. Therefore, Gabriel and Calum Chambers could be call upon more frequently by the manager.

At left centre back, it has to be Laurent Koscielny. There were reports that linked the France international with Liverpool earlier last week but, without doubt, Koscielny is definitely the club’s best defender.

Arsenal's left back will still be Nacho Monreal, whose brilliant consistency is something that please boss Arsene Wenger. He commented on his performance saying, “He’s 100 per cent committed and I think as well he has improved since arriving and has shown that in many big games as well."

In central midfield, it has to be Aaron Ramsey. Midfield is an area where Arsenal are blessed as Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mohamed Elneny are also available. Another incredible central midfielder is Granit Xhaka, who the club have brought in for a whopping £30m from Borussia Monchengladbach.

In attacking midfield, on the right, it has to be Alexis Sanchez. Although, he may be the trending subject in the transfer window with Juventus keen on signing him, Arsenal will fight hard to keep him and maybe some big money signings can persuade him to stay at the Emirates Stadium. However, if the Gunners should fail to keep him at the club, there’s always Theo Walcott as second choice.

In central attacking midfield it's Mesut Ozil. This German playmaker was the king of assists last season and he still has got to a lot to offer this coming season.

On the left side of attacking midfield, Arsenal hope to have Julian Draxler. Apparently, Arsenal are believed to be chasing the German's signature and he could cost the club about £43m. At club level, he has played in both central and wide positions as an attacking midfielder. I can’t wait for Wenger to bring this incredible German to the Emirates this summer.

Finally, the striker positon. It could be Alexandre Lacazette or Olivier Giroud. Although Giroud has been great for France, Arsenal have still been linked with Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette. However, to sign the Lyon forward, we will have to pay a reported fee of £42m. So if he is deemed too expensive for us to buy, don’t forget we have Danny Welbeck (who’s superb when fully fit).
