In light of England’s friendly vs Germany tonight, there has been a lot reported in the media on the Bundesliga and Premier League alike. Julian Draxler, a regular for Bundesliga outfit FC Schalke 04 is quoted in saying it would be his “dream” to move to the English Premier League in the future. In particular, Manchester United or Arsenal being his preferred destination. The highly rated German youngster has already a portion of clubs wanting to acquire his services.
Lewis Holtby, an ex-FC Schalke 04 player was quoted in the Express as saying;
“Draxler is on the list of every big team.”
“He is a fantastic young player and I think a lot of money will probably be spent on him. I don’t know whether he wants to come but there are a lot of players there.”
This comes at a time when German playmaker, Mesut Ozil has quickly settled in England and the Premier League set up. Which paves the way for more and more German players being interested in joining clubs within the EPL.
The BBC recently spoke to Draxler and this is what he had to say;
“I like English football. I like the Premier League of course – it’s one of the best leagues in the world,”
“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.”
Draxler has made 86 appearances for FC Schalke 04 scoring 14 goals and he’s only 20 years-old, which are phenomenal stats for a young player. He has also represented his country at U18, U19, U21 and full first team.
