Julian Draxler has said he plans to stay at Schalke 04 this summer despite continued links with a move to Arsenal.

The 20-year-old, who captained his national side in a lacklustre 0-0 friendly against Poland last night, has been on the radar at Arsenal for some months now but the forward confirmed his future remains with his boyhood club Schalke, at least for now.

According to reports in Germany, cited in the Express, Draxler stated: “I have absolutely no thoughts on moving. It is guaranteed that there will be speculation, but it’s very, very likely I will play [at Schalke] next season.”

The youngster, who has long been regarded as one of the players to watch out for, has three years left on his current deal at the Veltins Arena, however, with a reported £28 million buy-out clause rumoured to be in place, it may only be a matter of time before it is activated.

The midfielder has been selected in Joachim Loew’s 30-man provisional World Cup squad, while Schalke finished an impressive third in the Bundesliga, meaning qualification for the Champions League for their fourth consecutive season.

If Draxler, who is expected to play a large part in the World Cup this summer, impresses for his country, it may prove difficult for Schalke to keep hold of their man, who has also attracted attention from Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid.
