Julian Draxler claims that Schalke can challenge for silverware next season.

Schalke 04 midfielder Julian Draxler has expressed his belief that the club can challenge for trophies next season.

The 19-year-old, who signed a new five-year deal with the Bundesliga side in May, has been linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

However, Draxler believes that Schalke can emulate the recent success of rivals Borussia Dortmund by winning silverware.

"The aim is to take one of three titles. I think that this team is ready for that. We are tightening the net to catch the teams above us," he told Bild.

"The last three years have been decisive for Dortmund. Before that, Schalke were always ahead of them.

"Now we have reached the point where we again proceed slowly. The plan is, of course, to overtake them again and we are well positioned for this."

Schalke's last trophy came in 2011 when they won the DFB-Pokal.
