THE January transfer window may be closed, but already the narrative for the summer is starting to take shape, and it appears that Arsenal will be going toe to toe with German giants in the transfer market as well as the Champions League later this month.

And whatever happens in their European battle, it seems inevitable that the pair will end up as rivals for the hand of Schalke winger Julian Draxler this summer. The 20-year-old almost joined the Gunners last month but the deal fell through at the last minute. Now Arsenal and Bayern are expected to beat a path back to Schalke's door once the season is over.
