ANKARA -  Bundesliga team Schalke 04's German hot prospect Julian Draxler reiterated his intention to stay in his current club, ruling out transfer rumors that linked him to Arsenal.

Speaking to German newspaper Bild on Monday, the 20-year-old said he expected unverified transfer rumours to emerge throughout the summer.

"But it is very, very, very likely that I will be playing for Schalke for the next season," he was quoted as saying.

Having scored 15 goals in 101 Bundesliga matches in total, Draxler, whose contract will expire in 2018, has found the net twice in 26 Bundesliga appearances this season.

He is expected to be in the national squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
