David Moyes is expected to make an offer for the Schalke youngster next summer though Man United will have to battle a number of sides vying for Draxler’s signature with PSG and Arsenal also known to be tracking the attacking midfielder.
Draxler has previously stated his love for English football, stating;
“I like English football. I like the Premier League of course – it’s one of the best leagues in the world,”
“You have big clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea – of course it’s a big dream to play for one of them. I have my favourite team, but at the moment I’m at Schalke. I don’t want to talk about other clubs.
“If I state Arsenal or Manchester United, maybe I’d read it tomorrow in the newspapers.”
Draxler has already amassed 127 top tier appearances for Schalke and has ten national team caps to his name and he could offer Moyes some midfield guile and an ideal outlet who offers a more natural link between midfield and attack.
Draxler certainly has an eye for goal, the youngster scored 13 in all competition last term, but the intelligent midfielder is a good all round performer who will certainly be showing up on the radar of most of Europe’s ‘Elite’.
