Dick Law is part of the Arsenal delegation in Germany today thrashing out terms with Schalke over Julian Draxler.

Law is regarded as Arsenal's chief negotiator and was influential in clinching last August's agreement with Real Madrid for Mesut Ozil.

Sources in Germany claim that a £36 million fee between Arsenal and Schalke has been provisionally agreed, with only the method of payment needing to be settled.

Personal terms won't be a problem, with Draxler eager to see the deal done, having visited Arsenal's training facilities before Christmas.
