The German international has long been linked with a move to Arsenal, while Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are also said to be keen - although in recent weeks they have ruled out a summer move.

The 20-year-old has a contract at Schalke up to 2018, although he does have a release clause of around £40million.

But Schalke are not worrying themselves over Draxler's future and do not see him leaving the club.

"Julian (Draxler) will stay at our club, if there is not something extraordinary going to happen (this summer)," he told Sport-BILD.

"After that next season we will have to see. But I am very much convinced he will play even longer for Schalke than just next season."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
