Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich City have set their sights on Schalke’s Matthew Hoppe.
That’s what Transfermarkt are reporting and add the 20-year-old has drawn attention from a handful of clubs in Germany and across Europe.
It’s claimed Spurs have ‘signalled their interest’ in the forward, while the Canaries are considered a ‘candidate’ for his signing.
Ajax are credited with interest in the American, but they haven’t tabled an offer for him. In addition to this, the top four clubs from Germany are also monitoring the player’s situation.
Hoppe made his first team debut in November and has scored five goals in 15 league appearances.
His form convinced the Bundesliga side to offer an extension in February and his new deal runs until 2023.
It’s claimed Hoppe has a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with Schalke to let him leave at the end of the season, if his employer receives an ‘adequate offer’. The ‘agreement allows an exit’ and the estimated fee is between €7m and €10m.
TM also explain ‘some clubs are ready to make concrete offers’ for Hoppe, but it’s not clear whether Tottenham and/or Norwich are included in that list.
