Reports in Italy suggest that Arsenal are interested in Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler, however the club's general manager has said it would take an astronomical fee to prise the German away from the Veltins Arena. Juventus had a bid rejected for the 21-year-old old earlier in the summer and the Italian publication believe Arsenal are waiting in the wings to pounce on any potential deal. In other news, Mathieu Flamini is demanding a free from the Gunners if they want him to leave before his contract ends. The French star has 12 months left on his contact and is attracting interest from Italy and Turkey, though the 31-year-old would rather see out his current deal. And finally, Arsene Wenger is lining up a £22 million bid for Sevilla star Grzegorz Krychowiak, after sending scouts to watch him in last night's Super Cup. The Polish midfielder has a release clause in his contract and is seen as ideal competition for Francis Coquelin.
