Draxler, 20, has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium this month and the playmaker has previously admitted his admiration for the Gunners.

Former football Jan Aage Fjortoft, now a respected pundit in Germany, revealed earlier this month that Draxler had been left impressed by a tour of Arsenal’s training facilities but Wenger cryptically dismissed the suggestion.

Asked at a press conference if the German international had been at the club’s Colney training base, Wenger replied: “That’s like with the UFO’s. Some see them everywhere.”

Draxler has made 14 Bundelsiga appearances for Schalke this season, scoring once and providing four assists.

The youngster has been used almost exclusively from the left wing, with Kevin-Prince Boateng and Max Meyer preferred in the central playmaker position by boss Jens Keller.
