Julian Draxler was reportedly keen on a move to Arsenal during the January transfer window.

The Germany playmaker was heavily linked with a transfer to the north London club over the winter as manager Arsene Wenger looked to bolster his midfield options at Emirates Stadium.

However, a move failed to materialise and Wenger opted to bring in the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck in the summer window.

Speaking to ArsenalFanTV’s Moh Haider in London this week, Draxler reportedly confirmed that a move to the Gunners was on the cards – but refused to reveal why the transfer did not happen.

Draxler was in impressive form for Schalke on Wednesday night as the Bundesliga side sealed a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their Champions League opener.

The 20-year-old has made three Bundesliga appearances for the German club so far this season.
