Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has said he would welcome international team-mate Julian Draxler at the Emirates, according to ESPN.

Draxler has been linked with a move to the Gunners as early as this month in the media recently, and Mertesacker believes the acquisition would go down well with everyone at the club, but was keen to settle any excitement down, indicating that while many top names have been linked not all have arrived in north London.


He said: “We already have a small German academy here. It's a lot of fun that the German discipline and the special talent is valued here.


“Players like him are welcomed here. Julian Draxler has a great influence on Schalke and the Germany team, despite his young age. But let's wait and see what happens. A lot of players have been talked about in the past.”


Schalke are not thought to want to sell Draxler, and while the player has a release clause in his contract it does not become active until the summer. Schalke sporting director Horst Heldt has admitted that he hopes the club keep hold of the 20-year-old, and stated that there have not yet been any offers and no indication that he wants to leave.
