Schalke Ready To Sell Draxler

Julian Draxler has been the subject of much transfer speculation this summer as Schalke look to cash in on the talented youngster.

The 21-year-old, who Arsenal has been courting for years, has now attracted serious interest from Serie A giants Juventus as well as Premier League big guns Manchester United and Chelsea, reports the Express.

Despite his age, the German international has had an incredibly promising career to date.

The winger has been one of the most highly valued youngsters in world football over recent years due to his performances at the Veltins-Arena.

In his 107 Bundesliga appearances, the 6’2? speedster has notched 17 goals whilst his performances at club level have warranted him 15 international games.

The much courted Miners’ player came on as a substitute in the famous semi-final win over Brazil at the World Cup and has even captained his country against Poland in May 2014.

Despite the many suitors for Draxler, his injury prone nature is a worry for many.

Due to his absences, he made just eight Bundesliga starts last season  and just 41 appearances in the last two seasons.
