Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler says a move to England was too soon for him this summer.
Arsenal made a big play for Draxler in the final days of the market.
He said: "I've still got to work a lot on myself and improve.
"I'm going to try to do that as much as possible and then we can reconsider in the new year."
