Schalke are bracing for late bids from the Premier League for midfielder Julian Draxler.

The Germany international is a top target for Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal and has spoken of moving to England this summer.

BILD says Schalke chief Horst Heldt expects all three English giants to make offers for Draxler before next week's transfer deadline.

Heldt rates Draxler in the €45 million class.
