Reports claim Leon Goretzka will make his decision clear about his future at Schalke next month when the transfer window opens.
The German midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League with reports suggesting Arsenal are favourite in signing him.
Goretzka contract expires at the end of the season and has also been linked with a move to other European giants.
Juventus have declared their interest in the 22-year-old, scorer of four goals in 11 Bundesliga appearances this season, whilst Liverpool, Barcelona and Manchester United have also been linked with moves.
Schalke have not given up hope of convincing Gortezka to sign a new deal whilst the player himself insists he is still weighing up his next steps.
“I have to find out for myself what the next step should be,” Gortezka told reporters.
“I have to consider a million things. I am a person who is very meticulous in such decisions. I play through all the scenarios. So I need time.
“There doesn’t exist a deadline, but I think we are in the final phase. The final decision will be made in January.”
