Schalke reach basic agreement with Alexander Schwolow

Bild report that 28-year-old goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow has an agreement in principle to join Schalke 04 this summer.

The German stopper wants to take the next step in his career and with Alexander Nübel joining Bayern Munich, Markus Schubert failing to impress and the future of Ralf Fährmann being uncertain, there’s a No. 1 spot available at Schalke.

However, the Royal Blues have felt the financial impact of Covid-19. They’re unable to pay €25 million to purchase Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo on a permanent deal and questions as to whether they can pay Freiburg €8m for Schwolow have been raised.
