Blues leading race to sign Schalke 04 midfielder alongside Premier League rivals

15 November 2017

In-demand Goretzka is out of contract at Schalke at the end of the season and several clubs are eyeing the opportunity to take him away from the Ruhr giants.

Goretzka is reportedly being monitored by Liverpool and Tottenham, but Barcelona are said to be prepared to pay a fee of €15m (£13.2m) to ensure he arrives at the Camp Nou.

Consistently linked with both players in recent months, Marotta confirmed the Bianconeri are keen to bring them both to Serie A as they look to add further depth to an already star-studded squad.

However, according to Spanish transfer outlet Don Balon, Goretzka is heading to Liverpool.

While the growing buzz out of Liverpool is that the club have become resigned to losing Can and do not expect to sign the 23-year-old German global to a new deal, for their part, Schalke continue to insist that they believe there is a chance of convincing Goretzka to put pen to paper on a new long-term deal. "We remain in the race", Heidel told Kicker.

"It's not easy, and when you have to sign a player for Juventus". "I don't hide the fact we are following them both, but so too are many other teams".

Juventus seem to be the frontrunners to sign Can, but Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is still hoping his compatriot will commit his future to Anfield.

The Reds were reported to agreed a deal to sign the Germany midfielder in January, however, Schalke director Christian Heidel claims that Goretzka's departure from the Veltins-Arena is not certain.
