Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico is wanted by Bundesliga side Schalke this summer to replace Alexander Nubel, who will join Bayern Munich.
That is according to a report in fichajes.net, who outline how Sevilla are looking for a buying club for the goalkeeper while the German outfit are looking for a replacement for the outgoing Nubel.
Rico is on loan in the French capital until the end of the current campaign and is primarily a back-up to Keylor Navas, who was signed on a permanent deal from Real Madrid this summer.
The Spaniard has only played two Ligue 1 matches for Thomas Tuchel’s side this campaign – a 2-1 victory over Brest and 4-3 victory over Bordeaux.
Rico’s contract at Sevilla expires in the summer of 2021 and it is said that while PSG want a permanent deal, they believe their €10m option to sign the player is excessive – as outlined earlier this season by El Mundo Deportivo.
The goalkeeper spent last season on loan at Fulham, but he was unable to stop their relegation from the top-flight in England.
