Julian Draxler hints at Arsenal FC move

Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler has hinted at a possible summer move to Arsenal.

Draxler was linked with Arsenal during the last transfer window, while Chelsea and Real Madrid were rumoured to be showing interest in the 20-year-old, who Schalke general manager Horst Heldt recently insisted would not be sold when the transfer window reopens in January.

Manchester United are also believed to be keen on the Germany international, and although a January move is unlikely to happen, the player has hinted that he could sign for the Gunners at the end of the season.

"I have always said English teams are very big clubs and Arsenal is of course one of them," Draxler was quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.

"Of course I sometimes speak to Mesut [Ozil] or Per [Mertesacker] about the team, about the club, and they always have good words and they tell me nice things.

"You never know what happens in the summer but Arsenal is a very, very nice team. They always have very young players, they play attractive football and that’s what I like."

Of a possible January transfer, he added: "No way. I won’t switch then. It’s very important for me to play nearly every game.

"For my club I have the chance to play nearly every game; it’s important for me to improve myself.

"I’ve said every summer I have to look what is the best for me and I will do in the summer again and we will see what happens."
