22-year-old Leon Goretzka will be out of contract at Schalke at the end of the season and is now attracting interest from different clubs including Manchester City.
City have now joined the race in landing the young player with Bayern Munich, Juventus, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea all vying to get his signature.
The Blues want to get fresh midfield talent since Yaya Toure will leave next year and Fernandinho is also turning 33.
Pep Guardiola is impressed of the young midfielder because of his ability to play in different positions.
While Goretzka may be able to transfer for free after he ends his contract with the club, but it also looks like Schalke will want to cash in on January as clubs still show interest.
