Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler has reportedly emerged as a target for Manchester United.

Draxler is known to be a target for Arsenal and was linked with the Gunners during the summer transfer window, while Chelsea and Real Madrid are also rumoured to be showing interest in the 20-year-old.

But according to Goal.com, United boss David Moyes is keen on signing the Germany international and is said to hope an agreement with Schalke can be reached at some point next year.

Draxler is widely expected to be on the move in 2014, but despite the reported interest from Old Trafford, he has hinted that he could be ready to sign for Arsenal next summer. 

Schalke general manager Horst Heldt recently insisted the player would not be sold when the transfer window reopens in January.

But Draxler was this week quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror: "I have always said English teams are very big clubs and Arsenal is of course one of them.

"Of course I sometimes speak to Mesut [Ozil] or Per [Mertesacker] about the team, about the club, and they always have good words and they tell me nice things.

"You never know what happens in the summer but Arsenal is a very, very nice team. They always have very young players, they play attractive football and that’s what I like."

Of a possible January move, he added: "No way. I won’t switch then. It’s very important for me to play nearly every game.

"For my club I have the chance to play nearly every game; it’s important for me to improve myself.

"I’ve said every summer I have to look what is the best for me and I will do in the summer again and we will see what happens."

Draxler is under contract at Schalke until 2018.
