Schalke Sporting executive Christian Heidel also earlier discussed Goretzka’s situation and implied that in the upcoming January everything will be clear.

“I’d like to think that by the winter break we will have clarity,” he said.

But now as per well-known media group of Germany, Sports Bild has published that Premier League clubs Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have all enquired about the midfielder, although, the 22-year-old is also a subject of interest from Bayern and Barca and Goretzka mostly wants a move towards the last two clubs.

Goretzka has set up himself as one of the best players for Schalke since the 2013/14 season and has for quite some time been viewed as one of the best young players on the field. The 22-year-old scored five times for Schalke a year ago while additionally astonished everybody with his presentations for Germany at Confederations Cup where he became the top scorer of the competition.
