Chelsea are yet to make an enquiry for Julian Draxler, according to Schalke, with the young star reportedly on the Blues' radar for a big-money summer move.
Reports in Kicker yesterday claimed that Jose Mourinho wanted to bring Draxler to Stamford Bridge as he looks to overhaul the side's attacking line-up, and hand younger players such as Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne a chance with the first team.
The 20 year old has been highly spoken of at Schalke, and has featured for the Germany national side on numerous occasions now. His skills placed him on the radar of top clubs across Europe, including Arsenal and Bayern Munich, but Draxler signed a contract extension with his current side instead of entertaining any offers.
German reports have said that he could still leave Schalke if Chelsea offered around €45 million, but general manager Horst Heldt told Bild he hasn't heard from the west London club as of yet.
"I have heard nothing about it," he said. "There has been no official transfer enquiry from Chelsea FC incoming and we are also in no touch with that club actually.
"Still it is a fact there are always clubs considering the qualities of players like Julian Draxler. Of course!"
Chelsea will no doubt be given a huge budget for the summer, with Edinson Cavani, Andre Schurrle and Hulk also believed to be on Mourinho's wishlist.
Cavani admitted yesterday that he would relish the chance to work alongside the former Real Madrid manager, who has returned to the Blues for a second tenure in the hopes of building on the unprecedented success he had the first time around.
Meanwhile, Schurrle's move to Chelsea looked to be close to a done deal last month, but Bayer Leverkusen have insisted they will need to find a replacement first, which was believed to be de Bruyne before the deal fell apart after Borussia Dortmund showed interest in the youngster.
Meanwhile, Hulk is desperate to get out of his current situation with Russian side Zenit St Petersburg - the forward has hardly played for the side after falling out with coach Luciano Spalletti, trying to engineer a move in January which was actually illegal under FIFA regulations.
With that in mind, he could be available for less than his sky-high exit clause.
