BERLIN - Schalke 04's general manager Horst Heldt has denied British media reports suggesting their Germany midfielder Julian Draxler is on the verge of signing for Premier League side Arsenal.

"I am very sure that Julian will not only play the second half of the season for us, but also probably beyond," the Schalke boss told a press conference in Gelsenkirchen on Thursday.

"We are happy that we have a world-class player in our ranks."

With the transfer window to close at midnight on Friday, the 20-year-old attacking midfielder has been strongly linked to Arsenal.
