Arsenal are reportedly still in the hunt for Julian Draxler, who is also being pursued by Juventus.
According to The Metro, Schalke 04 have rejected a bid of £15.6m from Juventus, giving more fuel to Arsenal in their chase of the 21-year-old.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is apparently keen on signing the young midfielder, and Arsenal may be willing to bid £30m for the German international.
Schalke are not expected to budge on any offers until they receive a bid worth that amount, and the Gunners may be facing competition as Draxler is also reportedly drawing interest from Chelsea.
Arsenal are still trying to upgrade their midfield despite having a whole host of options to play out wide.
The Gunners have not been active in the transfer window as a whole, but they will look to make another marquee signing after landing goalkeeper Petr Cech.
