Schalke's president has revealed the club have opened talks with Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira over a possible summer transfer.
Germany international Khedira, who has been beset with injury problems this season, is out of contract at the end of June and expected to leave the Bernabeu on a free.
The 27-year-old has been a reported target for Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United, but it appears as though the Bundesliga club are winning the race to land him.
Club president Clemens Tonnies claims that initial discussions are underway to bring Khedira to Gelsenkirchen.
He told German newspaper Bild: "There have been initial talks. We believe that a fit-again Khedira would help us."
Khedira is not thought to feature in Carlo Ancelotti's future plans after making just three La Liga starts for Los Blancos this season.
