Arsene Wenger Gives Cheeky Smile When Asked About Julian Draxler

Is Arsene Wenger just being coy, or is he being honest with the media pundits on transfer rumours? 

With the Frenchman's face, one can never tell. 

Here, in an interview with Ray Stubbs after Arsenal toppled Coventry City 4-0 in the FA Cup, Wenger can't help but smile when asked about the Julian Draxler-to-Arsenal rumours (hat tip to for brilliantly capturing the moment).

Wenger, of course, denied the reports of a swoop for the German starlet.


Wenger on Draxler: "That again is an illusion. There is nothing happening. There is no need to take a player on the flank."

But can we see into the Frenchman's grandiose transfer plans based on a smile? Here's an eerily similar grin that Wenger gave off during an interview after Arsenal dispatched Tottenham early on in the season.


What followed the Tottenham interview? The capture of Mesut Ozil. 

So based on his smile alone, Arsenal will surely sign Julian Draxler. Science.
