The agent of Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby has revealed they are currently mulling over offers from several Premier League clubs, according to the Daily Mail.

The Germany international – who has an English father – is out of contract at the end of the season and has so far been unable to agree terms over an extension.

The 22-year-old is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs in January and has been strongly linked with both Arsenal and Liverpool in recent months.

The Mail claim the duo are both keen on bringing the Schalke man to England and his agent Markus Noack has confirmed Holtby has received several offers from Premier League clubs.

While he may still remain in Germany with Schalke, Noack ruled out a potential move to Italy claiming his client would prefer a move to the Premiership or La Liga.

‘Lewis is very good at Schalke but above all there is an English club which has made a very interesting proposal,’

‘We are talking with Schalke about a possible extension for another three years,’

‘Talks are going well at the moment but the situation has definitely changed in the last period because several offers from Spain and England came in.

‘My client will have to decide whether to continue to grow in Germany or to try a new experience at the end of this season.

‘Inter Milan? We have not received any proposals from Italy and he would prefer [to play in] the Premier League and La Liga.’

Holtby did his reputation no harm with an impressive display during Schalke’s 2-0 win over Arsenal at the Emirates in their Champions League clash last week. But could he be turning out in the Red & White next season? Or will Liverpool persuade him his future is at Anfield?
