Julian Draxler Quickly Becoming One of Europe’s Brightest Young Players

The eyes of the world are quickly moving towards the Bundesliga in recent years.

The quantity and quality of several players like Robert Lewandowski and Franck Ribery and the level of teams like Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, who played on the UEFA Champions League final last season, are putting a lot of focus on a tournament that wasn’t very popular only a few years ago.

Another reason why the world is paying attention to the German championship is the play of Schalke 04 attacking midfielder Julian Draxler.

The youngster is one of the most polished young players in Europe, and he’s considered as a future talent who has the ability to be a game-changer in any given moment. He has already played for the German national team and he’s viewed as the future of the squad together with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Marco Reus and Mario Gotze.

This playmaker has the ability to play all over midfield, but he develops his game better when he sits behind the strikers. He’s equally adept to play as a winger and he’s no stranger to goals either, as he has a knack to find the back of the net quite often. All these qualities have him linked with teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Chelsea, but he has stated his desire to win a major trophy with Schalke before moving to another team.

It’s fair to say that he might move somewhere else soon as his quality will quickly become too much to handle for the Bundesliga.
