Schalke attacking midfielder Julian Draxler has admitted he would be interested in securing a move to the Premier League.

The 20-year-old, who has scored two goals in nine games for Schalke so far this season, was one of the standout performers in the Bundesliga last season.

Despite speculation linking Draxler with a move away from the Veltins-Arena, the midfielder decided to commit his future to Jens Keller's side by signing a contract extension in May.

Despite signing a new deal, Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea were said to be courting the £40m-rated German international throughout the summer.

Draxler, speaking to Cologne daily Kolner Stadt-Anzeiger, has admitted he loves playing Schalke but wants to play for one of Europe's top teams in the near future.

“I owe Schalke a lot, but my roots here are not so deep that I would not be able to leave," said Draxler. 

"I’m telling you honestly that my dream is to play for one of the big clubs at some point.

"If you want to achieve the big goals, which every world class player has, you have to play at the biggest clubs. These are Real, Barca, United, Arsenal, Chelsea.”

Draxler is likely to feature in Germany's World Cup qualifying match against the Republic of Ireland which takes place at the Rhein Energie Stadion later tonight.
