Gunners target close to resolving future.
Schalke playmaker and long-time Arsenal target Julian Draxler is reportedly edging closer to a move to Serie A giants Juventus this summer.
The German international appears to be on his way out of Schalke in a £15m deal, having held talks with Juve over a transfer that would see him replace the legendary Andrea Pirlo in the heart of their midfield.
According to The Sun, the Italian champions are keen to push the deal through, though there is no mention of interest from the Gunners in this particular transfer window, despite Arsene Wenger showing a strong interest in the youngster in the past.
