Arsenal target Julian Draxler has "absolutely no thoughts" about leaving Schalke

Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler admits he cannot see himself leaving the Bundesliga club this summer.

The 20-year-old was the subject of a bid from Arsenal last summer, although he turned down the approach which reportedly matched the size of a release clause in his contract.

Draxler, who is likely to be a key member of Germany's World Cup squad this summer, is tied to the Gelsenkirchen club until 2018 and does not expect to be leaving.

"I've absolutely no thoughts of leaving," Draxler told

"There's bound to be speculation, but it's very, very probable that I will be playing here next season."

Draxler helped Schalke secure third spot in the Bundesliga at the weekend with a 4-1 win over Nurnberg earning them a place in the group stage of the Champions League next season.

A product of the club's youth system, he became the youngest Schalke player to make 100 Bundesliga appearances recently while he has already been capped 10 times by his country.
