The teenager believes the capture of the Ghanaian is another example of his club's ambitions, while Timo Hildebrand is confident the Gelsenkirchen club has turned the corner.
"You always need time to get used to a new team," Draxler told FIFA.com. "I'm convinced I'm at the right club with Schalke.
"We haven't had a great start to the campaign and I was a bit disappointed after the first few games, but I think we took another important step forward after signing Kevin-Prince Boateng. We've got a strong team."
Schalke has picked up just four points from its first four league games of the season, but goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand is hoping it has turned the corner following a 2-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen last time out.
"It annoys me to concede so many goals. You can hardly shine as a goalkeeper if you concede three. But I think that I have held up well despite the poor start to the season," Hildebrand told Bild. "We cannot yet assess how stable we are, that was just a good game (against Leverkusen) nothing more."
