WANDERERS have enquired about the availability of German midfielder Florian Flick, claim reports in his home country.

National newspaper Bild says Bolton are one of four teams who have contacted Schalke about the 23-year-old, who spent the second half of last season on loan at FC Nurnberg.

Flick has 12 months left to run on his contract with Schalke, who were relegated from Bundesliga last season, and it is claimed there has been no contact about a renewal.

Reports state that the club do want to keep him, however, and have placed a seven-figure fee on his head.

Flick is a defensive midfielder who has played for Germany’s Under-21s team, making his debut last June as a substitute against Poland.

He has more than 100 senior appearances and was part of the Schalke squad that earned promotion to the top division in 2021/22.

Wanderers are unlikely to pay the type of fee quoted in the German press for a permanent move but have shown with a previous loan move for Xavier Amaechi that they are willing to do business for loans with foreign clubs.

At 6ft 2ins, Flick is known as a strong midfielder with a bright future, but the same reports claim that a trio of second-tier German sides - Holstein Kiel, Kaiserslautern and Nuremberg – are also monitoring his situation.
