Mesut Ozil took to social media on Thursday afternoon to encourage his fans to follow Arsenal transfer target Julian Draxler on Instagram.

Draxler has long been linked with a switch to the Premier League, with Arsenal and Chelsea both reportedly interested in luring the Schalke playmaker to England.

The Germany international was heavily linked with a move to Emirates Stadium last summer but a move failed to materialise.

Now, Ozil has potentially trigger fresh rumours linking Draxler with a summer transfer to the north London club by posing for a snap with his international team-mate.

Ozil is clearly a keen admirer of the 21-year-old Germany international and he posted the picture above on his Instagram account, writing: “Follow my bro @draxlerofficial on his new instagram #draxler#özil#bro”
