Kicker report that Wolfsburg want to extend the contract of 24-year-old midfielder Xaver Schlager beyond 2023 with the Austrian being linked with Borussia Dortmund.
The Bundesliga club want a decision by the summer but that may not be possible. Even if Schlager doesn’t sign an extension, that doesn’t necessarily mean the end of his career at Wolfsburg.
Die Wölfe will weigh up the sporting and financial benefits of Schlager. The Austria international helped Wolfsburg qualify for the Champions League but has missed much of the campaign through injury.
It’s possible that Schlager could leave on a free in 2023.
