Schalke whizkid Draxler shrugs off missing out on Arsenal move

Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler shrugged off missing out on a move to Arsenal yesterday.

Gunners chief Ivan Gazidis spent much of the weekend attempting to negotiate a price with Schalke for the young Germany international.

But terms couldn't be agreed, with Schalke slapping a €70 million price-tag on their star asset.

"No club in the world would be willing to pay 70 million for me," laughed Draxler.

"You can never say never. But I don't see it happening.

"I let the people have fun with all this. I'm staying calm over the speculation."
