The German midfielder has become a mainstay in Schalke’s midfield since arriving from Bochum in 2013 and has racked up 99 Bundesliga appearances already.

But with his contract to be expired in June, a move to one of the biggest clubs in Europe is in the cards. But the German club is doing everything in their power to convince the 22-year old midfielder to stay at Gelsenkirchen.

Clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea,Liverpool are linked with Goretzka, while Bayern are also keeping the energetic midfielder under their radar.

Barcelona also has a strong interest on him claimed by Mundo Deportivo and the young German wants a move to Camp Nou. Marc Andre ter Stegen who is his compatriot has also convince him to make the move to Barcelona.

But the Merseyside club are not giving up on him without a fight, as Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp holds high regards of Leon Goretzka.

So now only time will tell whether Schalke cash in on him in the winter transfer window or let him go as free agent next summer when they would receive only a compensation package for his departure.
