With Kilian Ludewig, Frederik Ronnow, Goncalo Pacienza on loan and the replacement-free Vedad Ibisevic, FC Schalke 04 signed four new players in the summer. Another stormer appeared to be at the top of the list of royal flowers.
As the French journal “L’Equipe” reports, FC Schalke 04 had his eye on Timothy Weah from the OSC Lille in the last transfer window. According to this, those responsible for the boys even asked about the 20-year-old attacker at the League-1 club. It is not clear whether Weah was intended as a supplement to Ibisevic and Patience or as an alternative. In any case, no deal was reached.
Timothy Weah, son of former world football player George Weah, learned to play football at Paris Saint-Germain. The American could never really assert himself at the French Capital Club.

After a loan to Celtic Glasgow in the back of the season 2018/2019, PSG sold the stormer to OSC Lille for ten million euros in the summer 2017.
However, Weah has not been able to make a foothold with the Doggs either. In his first season, he was only in place three times for LOSC, also due to injury. In the current season Weah is already competing on six bets, but in the start eleven was the eighth-time U.S. national player. He could not score a goal in his Joker bets.
VfB Stuttgart and Bayer Leverkusen were already connected to clubs from the Bundesliga in the winter of 2018. At that time the VfB Stuttgart and Bayer Leverkusen were said to have stretched the sensors after the storm talent.
“In January I am ready for a loan and join another team to see what I can do in the next half of the season,” Weah had announced to “Sports Illustrated”. Celtic received the award.
