Arsenal's chances of landing German wonderkid Julian Draxler have been boosted due to the player's reluctance to join Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich, according to the Daily Star.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was keen on bringing the 20-year-old to the Emirates Stadium in January but were unable to agree a fee with Schalke.

Premier League leaders Arsenal failed to meet Draxler's £37million buy-out clause during last month's transfer window - but are said to be willing to renew their interest in the summer.

Schalke chief Horst Heldt said at the weekend that he had received an offer 'from a club to the north' of his side, which was reportedly Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

However Schalke boss Clemens Tonnies has revealed his star player will not be moving to the Allianz Arena at the end of the season.

Tonnies said: "I can rule out, 100 per cent, that Julian Draxler wants to go to Bayern."

Attacking midfielder Draxler, who has been capped 10 times by Germany, has scored four goals in 24 games for Schalke so far this season.
