Having reportedly turned down various offers from Europe's biggest clubs to stay at the Veltins-Arena, Draxler was left disappointed as Schalke failed to fire in their opening few games of the Bundesliga campaign.
However, the 19-year-old believes the signing of Boateng from Italian giants AC Milan on a four-year deal for €12million was a real statement of intent, and backed the Ghana international to succeed at the club.
"You always need time to get used to a new team," he told FIFA. "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."
Although they have collected just four points from their opening four games, Royal Blues goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand believes their recent 2-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen could be a real boost.
"We cannot yet assess how stable we are," he said. "That was just a good game [against Leverkusen]; nothing more.
"It annoys me to concede so many goals. You can hardly shine as a goalkeeper if you concede three, but I think I have held up well despite the poor start of the season."
Schalke are back in Bundesliga action this Saturday when they visit Mainz.
