Schalke are lining up a replacement for Julian Draxler, which leaves the path open for Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea to target the German international, reports talkSPORT

It has been reported that the German outfit are looking to bring Stuttgart midfielder Ibrahima Traore to the club, which will give Draxler the green light to make a move to the Premier League. 

With Schalke now planning for life after Draxler, both Arsenal and Chelsea may step up their pursuit for one of the most highly sought after stars on the planet. 

The German international has excelled in the Bundesliga in recent years and has been tipped for a move to England's elite division. 

Jose Mourinho will be hoping to bring the attacking midfielder to Stamford Bridge as he looks to build one of the finest young squads in Europe. 

However he may have to go head-to-head with Arsene Wenger for the player's signature, as the Arsenal boss wants to make him the next German at the Emirates club. 

However, a stumbling block for both Arsenal and Chelsea may be Schalke's £40 million valuation of the 20-year-old.
