Emirates Stadium side move ever closer to signing German international.
Arsenal are ready to offer forward Lukas Podolsi to help sweeten any potential deal to sign Schalke youngster Julian Draxler according to Sports Direct News.

The 20 year old German international, who is said to have a €45m (£37.4m) release clause, has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium but perhaps the addition of experienced star Podolski will help to secure a deal to bring Draxler to the Emirates Stadium?
Arsene Wenger has apparently set his sights on Draxler and the in-demand youngster has apparently reached a verbal agreement with the North London club.
Interest in Draxler may well have been increased by the injury suffered by England man Theo Walcott, with the Bundesliga starlet very able to push forwards and support the attack.
The addition of Podolski in the mix is perhaps unsurprising as the 28 year old seems out of favour at Arsenal, having returned from injury only to be left on the bench in recent weeks.
The former Bayern Munich man had a solid first season at Arsenal but has struggled for fitness this season, making just two Premier League starts this season.
