German duo have both been chased by a number of top-flight giants for some time now.
Tottenham Hotspur midfield player Lewis Holtby has urged compatriots Julian Draxler and Marco Reus to follow his lead by moving to the Premier League at some point in the future, according to reports in the London Evening Standard.
Schalke 04 midfield player Draxler and Borussia Dortmund forward Reus have both been closely monitored by a whole host of big-name clubs from the Premier League of late after consistently turning in a series of eye-catching displays for their respective clubs both at home in the Bundesliga, as well as in the Uefa Champions League too.
In fact, both Germany internationals were on display for their teams in this week’s latest round of Champions League group-stage fixtures against English opponents, with Draxler and Schalke going down 3-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, while Reus and Dortmund were also beaten 24 hours earlier by another side from the capital following Arsenal’s 1-0 victory in the Rhur Valley.
And now Spurs’ own Germany international has urged his two fellow countrymen to also join him in the top flight.
“Draxler is on the list of every big team,” Holtby told Standard Sport. “He is a fantastic young player and I think a lot of money will probably be spent on him. I don’t know whether he wants to come but there are a lot of players there.
“People say Marco Reus is in talks with everyone here so Germany have a number of big talents and the Premier League is very keen on getting them in.”
Draxler, 20, has a contract with Schalke that currently runs until June 30 2018, while Reus, 24, is tied down to last season’s Bundesliga and Champions League runners-up until the summer of 2017.
