FC Schalke 04 interested in second division star


FC Schalke 04 are said to have found what they were looking for at FC St. Pauli when they were looking for reinforcements for the coming season.

As “Bild” reported, S04 sports director Rouven Schröder is interested in Leart Paqarada. The left-back is only under contract with Hamburg until 2023. The transfer fee is said to be around 1.2 million euros.

In the past season, Thomas Ouwejan and Kerim Calhanoglu mostly played on the left side of defense at FC Schalke 04. A signing of Paqaradas could give the miners even more depth in this position.

In the past season, the 27-year-old played 37 competitive games for the Kiezkicker, for which the native of Aachen has played since 2020. At FC St. Pauli there are said to be “several offers” for Paqarada.

FC Schalke has reportedly already approached sports director Andreas Bornemann. Those responsible at FC St. Pauli have prepared for the fact that several players could leave the club in the summer.

“Up until this transfer period, we often hoped that clubs might be interested in one or the other player,” President Oke Göttlich is quoted as saying by the tabloid: “Now we’re in the fortunate situation that clubs are interested in our players. That is a clear signal of our expandable further development.”

In addition to Paqarada, Guido Burgstaller and Daniel-Kofi Kyereh are also likely to be eliminated. While 1. FC Nürnberg and Rapid Wien are said to be interested in Burgstaller, SC Freiburg is apparently interested in Daniel-Kofi Kyereh.

FC St. Pauli ended the second division season eight points behind FC Schalke 04 in fifth place. The Royal Blues won 3-2 against St. Pauli on Matchday 33, making their return to the Bundesliga perfect.
