Juventus eye Draxler

Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Schalke's Julian Draxler in January, according to reports in the Italian Press.

The 19-year-old playmaker has been a near ever-present in Die Knappen's team this season, playing six of the first eight League games, and helping Huub Stevens' men to third place in the Bundesliga.

The Bianconeri are said to be keeping tabs on the midfielder, but could come into competition with Bayern Munich, Calcio Mercatio are reporting.

The wunderkid burst on to the scene in January 2011, becoming the second-youngest player to ever start in Germany's top-flight, and has since established himself as a regular for the Gelsenkirchen team, as well receiving two caps for the German national team.

Schalke are likely to ask for a fee of around €12m for the teenager.
