Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho plans to trump Arsenal for Schalke star Julian Draxler. Having already wrecked Liverpool's hopes for FC Basle winger Mohamed Salah, Mou is planning the same trick on Arsenal over Draxler.
The Mirror says Schalke want £35m for attacking midfielder Draxler and Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger is a long-time admirer of the 20-year-old.
But a source close to Mourinho said the Portuguese coach had earmarked him as a potential summer signing.
He added: "Jose likes him a lot and there is a big chance he will come at the end of the season.
"But if Arsenal go for him now, Jose's hand may be forced."
