Schalke starlet pleased with reported Arsenal interest


Schalke youngster Julian Draxler revealed his happiness after reading rumours suggesting Arsenal are interested in him.

The Gunners have been linked with the 18-year-old German midfielder in the past and having heard that they are reportedly in for him again, Draxler is nothing short of pleased.

He was quoted in German newspaper Sport-Bild saying:

‘I’ve read that Arsenal have interest in me. That made me very happy.’

If indeed Arsenal are thinking of making a move for him this month or in the next transfer window, then they will have to fend off Italian giants Inter Milan, who also appear keen on the youngster:

‘My agent informed me that Inter have shown interest. It’s a great feeling and new for me. I am tremendously honoured by such a thing.’

The Metro recently claimed that Draxler could be seen as a potential replacement for Arsenal’s disgruntled forward Andrey Arshavin, and this, in my opinion, could only realistically occur in the summer, as I don’t think Wenger will make a move for him – or anyone for that matter – in the next 4 days.

The right-footed, attacking left winger has made 17 appearances (9 starts) for Schalke so far this season, where he has contributed 3 assists and 1 goal.
