Julian Draxler’s comments about leaving Wolfsburg were so clear and cold that it was always going to create a huge story in Germany.

Speaking to German newspaper Bild, Draxler said “For me it is so that I have expressed myself clearly after the Euros, with Dieter Hecking, that I want to leave Wolfsburg. The coach knows for more than three weeks.

“Two days after the semi-final at the European Championships I told him how I see the whole situation and what I want – which is to leave the club.”

Wolfsburger Allegmeine pick up the story on Wednesday, and they say Draxler’s Euro 2016 performances (Started 4 games, a further sub appearance, a goal and assist against Slovakia) mean that he’s now worth far more than Wolfsburg paid.

Covering Arsenal and Juventus interest, the newspaper send a clear message: ‘€70m, €80m or higher transfer fee does not seem unrealistic’

Wolfsburger Allegmeine may well think a €70m offer is reasonable and the level to be expected (or even higher), but it remains to be seen if any clubs agree.

It’s very ambitious to say the least. Draxler is very talented, but hasn’t progressed quite as quickly as some expected.

That may well be part of his reason for wanting an exit. The 22 year old seeing 20 year old Leroy Sane come through after him at Schalke, and joining Manchester City for €50m, could well encourage impatience.
