Schalke captain Benedikt Howedes has fuelled speculation linking him to Liverpool after admitting he be open to moving to the Premier League.
Howedes, 27, reportedly turned down the chance to join Arsenal over the summer has been linked with a move to Liverpool since Jurgen Klopp’s arrival last week.
He was one of the players we mentioned in our list of 10 Bundesliga stars Klopp could look to bring to Anfield earlier this week.
The Germany international still has two years remaining on his current deal with Schalke and insists he remains focused on football in the Bundesliga.
“I am still keen on going abroad and playing in England is definitely a flattering option in this respect,” Howedes told Bild.
“Still I am with Schalke and I have a job to do at this club. I am not looking at any other thing actually.
“But, of course, some clubs are somehow more of interest from the point of view of a footballer than other clubs might be.”
