Schalke starlet Julian Draxler has stated he would prefer to play in Spain over Italy if he were to leave the Bundesliga in the future.

The 19-year-old has been linked with moves to Juventus and Inter in recent months, but has admitted he would prefer a move to La Liga over the Serie A.

“It is exciting to think about a move to another country and learning a new language,” Draxler told the the Frankfurter Allgemeine.

“Italy? It is an interesting country, but I prefer Spain. I really enjoy the football that is played in La Liga.”

The youngster has already made three appearances for the German national team, while recently becoming Schalke’s youngest player to make 100 appearances for the club.
