Schalke are having a season to forget as they sit at the bottom of the table after managing only one win in 25 matches.

Matthew Hoppe is one of the few positives of this campaign and he’s drawing attention from Liverpool, according to Transfermarkt.

The 20-year-old is in the sights of a few clubs, including the Reds and Ajax. The report says the Amsterdam side haven’t tabled an offer for the forward.

Liverpool are one of the English sides to have ‘signalled their fundamental interest’ in the player.

The USMNT attacker signed a new contract last month and his current deal runs down in June 2023.

Despite the renewal, the outlet explains there is a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ between the two parties to allow the player to leave, if the Bundesliga side receive a suitable offer.

According to TM, the ‘agreement’ allows Hoppe to leave Schalke for a ‘high single-digit million’ fee, which is estimated between €7m and €10m.

Liverpool did business with Schalke in the winter market when they took Ozan Kabak on a loan deal with an option to buy. The relationship between the two sides could benefit the Reds, if they retain a keen interest in signing Hoppe in the next market.
