Borussia Mönchengladbach, Eintracht Frankfurt, FSV Mainz 05: Tom Krauss, who is currently on loan from RB Leipzig to FC Schalke 04, has allegedly made his way onto the notes of numerous clubs. Now the U21 national player has commented on the speculation about his future.
29 competitive games with 2311 minutes: Tom Krauss is one of the busy professionals in 2022/2023 in the FC Schalke 04 squad.
The fact that the 21-year-old, despite the poor season of the Bundesliga-17. always stands out in terms of performance, he has long since caught the eye of other clubs. According to media reports, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Eintracht Frankfurt and FSV Mainz 05 have put out feelers to Krauss.
According to his own statement, Krauss’ focus is only on his current employer, despite the well-known prospects. “I’m not interested in any of that. I want to keep the class with Schalke – then I have a contract here. I’m fully focused on Schalke,” said the courted professional of “WAZ”.
If the Royal Blues manage to save Krauss, he is said to have a purchase obligation of three million euros, plus possible bonuses of 1.5 million euros. His contract with Schalke would then run until 2027.

If Schalke has to start the bitter journey to the 2nd Bundesliga again, Krauss will first return to his parent club RB Leipzig.
However, since the Saxons themselves probably have no use for the home-grown plant, there would be another change of scenery in the room – a situation for which Gladbach, Frankfurt and Co. are said to be preparing themselves.
The Borussia are said to be particularly concrete efforts to Krauss. According to “Sport Bild”, sporting director Roland Virkus personally attended the Schalke home game against Hertha BSC (5: 2) on matchday 28 to take a close look at the object of desire. After all, the Gladbach manager got to see a 25-minute joker insert from Krauss.
