After news that Lyon are in discussions with Chelsea to sign Bertrand Traoré, reports in Germany also suggest that Schalke are interested.
The €20 million asking price is no doubt a stumbling block for the Bundesliga club, who are also interested in the Chelsea player, according to der Westen.
The 21-year-old spent the 2016/17 season on loan at Ajax, losing out to Manchester United in the Europa League final.
The regional paper suggest talks are still ongoing in extending the loan of Baba Rahman.
EDIT: According to Kicker, Hoffenheim are the latest club to be interested in Traoré.
