Arsenal Target Julian Draxler

Young German midfielder will be in the spotlight when Chelsea visit in the Champions League on Tuesday

Julian Draxler has told Premier League clubs he is staying in Germany to win European trophies, writes Neil McLeman in Dusseldorf.

The 20-year-old Schalke star was tracked by Arsenal in the summer before agreeing a new five-year contract – with a £38million buyout clause.

Draxler, an international team-mate of Chelsea’s Andre Schurrle, said: “In the last few years the Bundesliga has had a really positive development and is now one of the top leagues.

“You could see that by the sides in the Champions League final.

”We can win major European titles now.

“English football and the Premier League is also one of the best.

“I have had chats with Andre about it but my focus is with Schalke.”
