According to The Telegraph, Arsene Wenger is keen on bringing highly-rated Julia Draxler to Arsenal, this summer.
However, the main stumbling block in this deal is the price that Schalke are asking for their star – £28.7m.
Arsene Wenger is still keen on bringing the midfielder to the Emirates ahead of next season. But, there are plenty of teams who have also expressed their interest in the German midfielder.
He is widely tipped to be one of the ‘next big things’ in football, after impressing in recent seasons at the Bundesliga club.
The 21-year-old made 18 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring two goals and grabbing himself two assists.
Tutto Mercato Web are suggesting that the young midfielder is keen to make the move to the Premier League, and to Arsenal.
Draxler is one of several players that has been linked with a move to the Gunners in recent seasons, but the high buy-out clause has put Wenger off on several occasions.
If he does make the move to London, he’ll be teaming up with fellow German internationals Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Serge Gnabry.
