Do Arsenal stand a realistic chance of signing this £15m wonderkid?

Arsenal target Julian Draxler has rubbished suggestions that he will move to Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

The midfielder, who is rated highly across Europe, has been the subject of a bidding war between the Gunners and Bayern Munich.

Munich have been busy snapping up German talent, and have already confirmed the signing of Mario Gotze from Dortmund.

However, Schalke general manager Horst Heldt said it would take at least £85m to bring them to the negotiating table.

Draxler himself was quoted by the Express as saying. “Some of the rumours have been taken for face value, which has made me sad. I can promise to all that I will not play for Borussia Dortmund.”

We look at whether or not Arsenal have a realistic chance of signing this £15m wonderkid.
