Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits they're focusing on the German transfer market.

Wenger is eyeing Schalke starlet Julian Draxler, who he attempted to sign on the final weekend of the summer market.

"Right now the top players are coming from Germany. Suddenly they have Ozil, Draxler, Schweinsteiger, Kroos and Podolski. You have two or three players for every position. Therefore, the focus is more on German players," said Wenger.

"It is also a nation that can adapt very well. They are a bit like the northern countries in the way they can settle quickly."
