Bundesliga outfit Schalke have moved to confirm they are exploring the possibility of recruiting Spartak Moscow defender Serdar Tasci.
It is no secret that the Miners are on the lookout for a quality central defender with both Benedikt Howedes and Matija Nastasic out injured.
And just as we suggested few days ago, Schalke appear to be keen on luring former Stuttgart captain Serdar Tasci to Veltins Arena.
“I can confirm that we are looking at Tasci. He is another player we are examining,” Schalke chief Horst Heldt was quoted as saying in Bild.
Serdar Tasci has been in fine form since leaving Stuttgart for Spartak Moscow in the summer of 2013, but it is believed that he hopes to return to German Bundesliga.
With his contract due to expire in June 2017, the 28-year-old is valued at €5 million by the Russian giants.
A return to Germany could also improve Tasci’s chances of ending his international exile, having last represented the national team at the 2010 World Cup.
