Schalke keen on Renato Augusto, Inler

German daily newspaper Sport Bild has learned that Schalke are considering winter moves for Renato Augusto and Gokhan Inler.

The Miners will soon stay without general manager Horst Heldt, whose deal is due to expire in the summer, but he will have some important work to do before he leaves Veltins Arena.

Namely, the 46-year-old has yet to find a proper replacement for Julian Draxler, although it appears that Corinthians midfielder Renato Augusto has been chosen as the primary target.

Schalke coach Andre Breitenreiter confirmed to Sport Bild that Augusto was “an interesting and excellent player”, which is enough to suggest he could soon be joining the Miners.

The 27-year-old already has plenty of Bundesliga experience having represented Bayer Leverkusen between 2008 and 2012.

But, considering that Schalke will have €11 million to spend on January reinforcements and that Augusto will cost around €10 million, they will have to try and secure a loan deal for other target Gokhan Inler, who has failed to impress since joining Leicester City.
