Among other things, the 66-year-old Swiss sees a need on the offensive wing. The Royal Blues apparently targeted a player from the English second division. According to the Daily Mail, S04 – just like VfL Wolfsburg and OSC Lille – are interested in Tom Ince.
Immediate aid for Schalke?
The 28-year-old winger is only second choice at Stoke City. With the experience of 48 Premier League and 294 Championship games (89 goals in total), Ince could represent the hoped-for emergency aid for Schalke.
Stoke is ready to give the left foot if his salary is taken over. Schalke would have an approximate cost of one million euros. Interesting: The miners have just agreed on loan from Rabbi Matondo (20) with Stoke. So the wires between the clubs are in place.
Right-back and center-forward wanted
Another problem area with royal blue is on the right back. Preferred candidate Mitchell Weiser (26, FT reported exclusively) is now injured and could therefore stay at Bayer Leverkusen. S04 was offered according to ‘Sky’ Yan Valery (21, Southampton FC). In addition, a new center forward should come – even if the 19-year-old Matthew Hoppe (six facts) scored three times yesterday.
