Wolfsburg midfielder Julian Draxler has revealed that he will leave the German club during the summer transfer window.
A target for Arsenal and Manchester United, the 22-year-old says it is not true that he is happy and wants to stay at Wolfsburg for at least one more season.
He has a market transfer value of £50million with Metro believing that he wants to leave Germany to join Arsenal.
"Before you go public like that [the club saying I am happy], you really should speak with me first," Draxler told Sport Bild.
"The situation with me is that I made it clear to [head coach] Dieter Hecking after we were knocked out of Euro 2016 in the semi-final that I would like to leave Wolfsburg.
"The coach has known about this for three weeks. It's very surprising that they have been talking about me to the media for weeks.
"I would have expected things to be different, for example for one of them to come to me and ask me how things are with me.
"When I joined, I was assured - verbally - that I could leave the club whenever the opportunity arose.
"Both Hecking and [sporting director] Klaus Allofs said this. It was clear that Wolfsburg had good prospects, but also that they were a springboard for me.
"It was always clear to everybody that I would like to join a top club in Europe, if I were to get the chance."
