Schalke target talks up summer exit

Fortuna Dusseldorf striker Charlison Benschop has made it clear that he plans to leave his current employers for greener pastures at the end of the season.

The former AZ Alkmaar forward did well to kick-start his career in Germany’s second division and while he was hoping to help Fortuna gain promotion to the Bundesliga, it is now clear that is not going to happen.

However, chances are that the 25-year-old will be playing top flight football next term after all, with Schalke and Koln expressing interest in his services.

And with a clause in his contract allowing him to leave in the summer for mere €1.5 million, everything suggests a summer exit is on the cards.

Even the striker himself has confirmed his plans to leave Fortuna when the current campaign comes to an end.

“I have enjoyed my time at Fortuna, but everyone must understand that I want to play at the highest level,” Benschop told Bild.

The powerful forward has done really well since joining from AZ Alkmaar, scoring 25 goals in 55 league outings.
