Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler has admitted Premier League ambitions. Draxler is a January target for Chelsea and Arsenal, while he admits Manchester United are also a club he admires.

"I owe Schalke a lot, but my roots here are not so deep that I would not be able to leave," Draxler told Kolner Stadt-Anzeiger.

"I'm telling you honestly that my dream is to play for one of the big clubs at some point.

"If you want to achieve the big goals, which every world class player has, you have to play at the biggest clubs.

"These are Real, Barca, [Manchester] United, Arsenal and Chelsea."
