Julian Draxler is the 20-year-old superstar who this season has taken the Bundesliga by storm.

The Schalke midfielder has racked up a transfer fee nearing £40 million, as an impressive set of performances propel the versatile player into the public eye.

He currently holds the record for the youngest player to appear for the German side, making his debut in 2011 aged just 17 and 177 days old - only a week later did the wonder kid score his first goal.

At international level, Draxler wasn't quite ready for the 2012 Euro finals in Poland/Ukraine. However, he has since established himself firmly within the German national side and will, more than likely, have every chance to prove himself in Brazil.

Whether Brazil is in his future or not, Draxler will remain a media talking point this summer as both Arsenal and Chelsea prepare themselves to battle it out for the signature of this youngster.
