Arsenal scouts have once more been seen in Germany where they are following the development of long-term target Schalke’s Julian Draxler.

The Gunners scouts watched the German star in action against Slovenian club Maribor during midweeks Champions’ League group matches leading to speculation that Arsenal could be willing to test the Germans resolve in January to keep hold of one of the Bundesliga’s top talents.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger also dispatched two scouts to watch 21-year-old Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Marcelo Brozovic in action against Glasgow Celtic where they were joined by representatives from Everton, Liverpool and Spurs to watch the up and coming Croatian.
