FC Schalke 04 is longing for the end of the Premier League season. As soon as the last game day is over this Sunday, the miners want to intensify their efforts for Matthew Longstaff. According to the ‘Daily Star’, the defensive midfielder is at the top of the wish list at Schalke. But it was also Udinese Calcio’s turn, just like Watford FC. In addition, Burnley FC, Southampton FC and West Ham United are said to have felt.
The 20-year-old Longstaff is also very popular because it can be bought free of charge. He has so far rejected an extension in Newcastle. The main reason for this is the lack of personal perspective in his eyes. Since restarting the Premier League, Longstaff has only made two short appearances.
The defensive midfielder could follow in the footsteps of Weston McKennie on Schalke. The 21-year-old American is courted by Hertha BSC and is also said to have made a lasting impression on Liverpool, Everton, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newcastle United. Royal Blue is hoping for a full transfer – and the successor for free.
