Arsenal are said to have been given a huge boost in their chase of Schalke star Julian Draxler as he is reported to be heading to the Premier League this summer, according to the Metro.
Draxler has been linked with a move to Arsenal for the best part of a year, and now Arsene Wenger is reportedly ready to launch a £30m move to finally bring him to the Emirates.
The 21-year-old comes highly-rated, though he has endured a frustrating campaign with the German giants, but may now be set to put it behind him by linking up with the Gunners.

Wenger is a known admirer of the Germany international, and the news will surely excite fans as the transfer window proper approaches.
Having broken through to the Schalke first team back in 2010, he has gone on to make 157 appearances for the club, scoring 29 goals.
He has also collected 15 caps for Germany, and was a part of the squad that lifted the World Cup last summer.
