Premier League giants Chelsea and Liverpool are among clubs keeping close tabs on Schalke full-back Sead Kolasinac, Bild has suggested.
The 23-year-old will be out of contract at the end of the season, and it is by no means certain that he will sign a new deal at Veltins Arena.
Namely, the 23-year-old appears to be behind summer recruit Abdul Rahman Baba in the pecking order and he could wait until the winter before making a decision on his future.
German media outlet Bild understands that English Premier League could be his next destination as the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and West Ham are keen.
The Blues could decide to allow Baba to join Schalke on permanent basis, while signing Kolasinac as a back up to Marcos Alonso.
Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is far from happy with his current left-back options and could make a move on the player he knows well from German Bundesliga.
