Arsenal transfers: Julian Draxler dreaming of England move
Arsenal transfers: Julian Draxler fuels speculation linking him with Gunners by saying it would be a "dream" to play in England
Julian Draxler has fuelled speculation linking him with a transfer to Arsenal by admitting that it would be a “big dream” to play for one of the Premier League’s top clubs.
The Gunners were linked with a move for the 20-year-old midfielder, who has scored 14 goals in 86 Bundesliga games for Schalke, over the summer.
Draxler, who has also been touted as a target for Manchester United and Chelsea in recent months, has made no secret of his desire to one day secure a move to England.
However, the midfielder remained coy when pressed over which Premier League club would be his first-choice destination should he leave Germany.
“I like English football. I like the Premier League of course – it’s one of the best leagues in the world,” Draxler told BBC Sport.
“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.”
