Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants the club to make an big bid for Schalke star Julian Draxler in January.

That's according to reports in Germany that claim Mourinho wants to make an offer worth around £25m when the winter window opens.

Schalke general manager Horst Heldt has recently spoken out about the young star's future in the Bundesliga telling interested parties Arsenal and Manchester City they may have to wait until next summer.

The 20-year-old was hugely impressive for the German club last season catching eye with 13 goals in 39 appearances.

However Heldt has ruled out a January switch to the Premier League for Draxler who is likely to be included in Germany's squad for next summer's World Cup in Brazil.
