Schalke rival Leicester for Inler

Reports in Italy suggest Schalke 04 could beat Leicester City to the signature of Napoli’s Gokhan Inler.

It had been thought the Foxes had won the race for the Swiss international, with Gazzetta dello Sport reporting this morning that they had struck a deal for €6m.

Schalke had previously been offering just €4m, but Sky is reporting this evening that the German side have raised their offer to €7m plus bonuses, topping Leicester’s offer.

The Bundesliga side are therefore thought to be in pole position for Inler’s signature, unless Leicester are willing to top their offer.
