Wolfsburg striker Mario Gomez has indicated if Julian Draxler does not want to be at the club then it is better he leaves.
Draxler wanted to quit the Wolves in the summer transfer window, but a move away was blocked. He remains keen to move on and Wolfsburg are now not planning to stand in his way in the winter transfer window if they receive an acceptable fee.
Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Sevilla are all keen, and Gomez thinks it is best for all parties that Draxler leaves, if that is what he wants.
"If you don't want to be here, you should go", he said on Sky Deutschland, in comments which were seen as a message to Draxler.
Gomez then repeated his view to German daily Bild, saying: "Travellers should not be stopped."
Wolfsburg only signed Draxler in the summer of 2015 from Schalke, splashing out an initial €33m to take him to the Volkswagen Arena.
But the attacking midfielder has struggled to settle at the club and is keen to start a fresh chapter in his career.
And it appears most likely Draxler will seek to do that away from Germany, though where he ends up remains to be seen.
