The highly-rated Germany international joined the Bundesliga side just one year ago but is ready to leave, insisting they assured him he would be allowed to move on
Julian Draxler has revealed he wants to leave Wolfsburg just one year after joining the Bundesliga side, insisting there is interest in him.
The 22-year-old winger moved to the Volkswagen Arena from league rivals Schalke in August 2015, ignoring interest from clubs such as Juventus and Arsenal.
However, the Germany international says he is ready to move on, maintaining that the club agreed to let him leave.
“Before one goes public, they should also have a word with themselves,” he told Bild.
“I expressed myself clearly after the Euros, with coach Dieter Hecking, that I want to leave Wolfsburg. The coach has known for more than three weeks.
“Two days after the semi-final defeat to France at the European Championships, I told him how I see the whole situation and what I want, which is to leave the club.
“I was verbally assured with my transfer in August 2015 that I can leave the club when given opportunities. From Hecking as well as technical director Klaus Allofs.
“It was always clear between all parties that I would like to go to a top international club if the opportunity arises. It was discussed that we speak rationally with one another, if other clubs show interest.”
Draxler, who was a key player for Germany at Euro 2016, is contracted to Wolfsburg until 2020.
