Schalke chairman Clemens Tonnies is confident his side can keep Julian Draxler away from the clutches of the Premier League's big boys.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are all said to be interested in tempting Draxler away from the Bundesliga.

Despite the aforementioned clubs' interest, Tonnies believes Germany international Draxler will commit his future to the Veltins-Arena.

Reports had suggested Arsenal had made the first move in the race to sign Draxler by offering the Bundesliga outfit £20million plus Lukas Podolski.

However Arsenal's hopes of signing Draxler, who has a £40million release clause, appear to have been dashed as Schalke have stated their intent on keeping the German playmaker.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Tonnies said on the possibility of Draxler leaving the club in the near future:

"I am of the opinion he should also be with us next season.

"It would be my personal advice. He can play his best football without any big pressure and at our club he would have a clear mind.

"He is very much in good hands playing for Schalke 04. My general advice for everyone would be to stop making Julian mad."

Draxler has stated in the past that his dream was to play for one of Europe's top teams - but that he was happy to learn his trade at Schalke.
