A comeback in poker for Schalke-Flirt Hysaj?

According to Italian media reports, Elseid Hysaj is at the top of FC Schalke 04’s wish list. Until now, however, the district club has faced several obstacles. Now there could be movement in poker around the right-wing defender from the SSC Naples.

According to the newspaper “Il Mattino”, the 25-year-old has chosen the Bundesliga as a wish club. This brings to the fore a change to the Spanish top club Atletitico Madrid, about which “Mundo Deportivo” reported in the past, at least for the time being.

In addition, “Sky Italia” had last mentioned that the Series-A Club did not think about selling the Albanian national player. According to Il Mattino, however, the signs are now on the point of separation.

But even if it looks like a turning point in the race for Elseid Hysaj, FC Schalke 04 still has a big problem: the replacement requirement. Again and again, a sum goes beyond the 20-million-euro mark.

The foreign defender’s contract is still dated in Naples until 2021. To the Ancelotti Club Hysaj came in the summer 2015. He was previously trained at Empoli FC.
