The Gunners have been strongly linked with the highly-rated German international on a number of occasions, and were reported to have missed out on signing him last January.

Arsenal then switched their focus to other attacking players in the summer as they brought in Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona and Danny Welbeck from Manchester United, though it has now emerged that Draxler could still be on the agenda.

The skillful playmaker put in a superb performance in the Champions League this week as his side took a surprise point away from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, with team-mate Klaas-Jan Huntelaar also catching the eye with the equalising goal.

With Mesut Ozil in poor form at the moment, it may be that Draxler will be considered as a replacement for his fellow countryman, though it seems likely that the north London giants would have to push through a number of player sales to afford Schalke’s asking price for the player, especially taking into consideration their significant summer spending in the build-up to this season.
