A Schalke spokesman has confirmed that the club remain unconcerned by reports linking Julian Draxler with a January exit.

Arsenal have been linked with a big money move for the winger all summer but things stepped up a gear today as reports suggested Arsenal have sent representatives to Germany to seal a deal.

The Gunners were rumoured to be deep in negotiations with the Bundesliga club and were ready to pay up to £30m to secure the 20-year-old's signature in this window.

However, Schalke want Arsenal to meet the £37m release clause that will be activated in Draxler's contract in the summer.

Of course, all of this is speculation and the German club have again come out and insisted that there are no negotiations currently taking place with delegates from the Emirates Stadium.

Speaking to German newspaper Der Western, Schalke spokesman Thomas Spiegel said: Regardless of all the media reports from England, we've no reason to concern ourselves with this matter."

So it seems that despite wide speculation that Draxler is on his way to Arsenal, a move to north London for the German prodigy still looks some way off.

The interest from Arsenal is believed to be real but the need for new wingers in Arsene Wenger's line-up remains small.
