Schalke have insisted that Julian Draxler is not for sale and it would take an offer of at least €70 million for the club to consider selling the star.

Draxler, who has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League giants Arsenal and Chelsea, has been in sensational form for the Bundesliga club and has even starred for the German international side at 20-years-old. 

However, Schalke's technical director Horst Heldt has revealed that they do not want to sell their prize asset and the star is happy at the club. 

During an interview with Bild, Heldt said: "No, why? He has a long-term contract and there is no reason that he will be sold this summer or next.

"We are in regular contact, he feels right and has now decided to stay at Schalke. We do not plan to sell."

However, despite not wanting to sell Draxler, the club's technical director admitted that a crazy offer would tempt the club to part company with the German international. 

Heldt continued by saying: "We are planning with Julian, but if an offer over €70m came in what I say then?

"We plan to keep him, everything else in this crazy football world I can not control."

Both the Gunners and Chelsea have been credited with great interest in the star and Arsene Wenger's side were linked with a £40m move for the ace in the summer. 

However, it now appears that any move for Draxler will be difficult for the Premier League duo.
