Schalke midfield starlet Julian Draxler is reportedly eyeing up a move to Arsenal this summer, according to the Metro.
The 21-year-old has been consistently linked with a move to north London, and now appears to be hopeful of seeing the deal go through in the very near future.
However, the main stumbling block in the deal, as it has always been, it Schalke’s £28.7m valuation, according to Italian news source Tuttomercatoweb.
The Germany international is still regarded as one of the best young players in Europe right now, despite an injury hit campaign reducing him to just a handful of first team appearances.
And though the Gunners are still keen on snapping him up, it is unsure as to wether they would be willing to cough up that kind of money for him.
Draxler, despite being so young, has managed to chalk up an impressive 157 appearances, scoring 29 goals.
