Who is coming, who is going? There is hardly a question that interests FC Schalke 04 fans more when there is no play. While the football world is looking to Qatar and the Knappen players are on vacation, the planning of the sporting management is in full swing.

After the surprising resignation of Rouven Schröder, sports director Peter Knäbel holds the reins in his hand. He has publicly announced that he wants to hit the transfer market. FC Schalke 04 will not have reinforcements in only one position.

FC Schalke 04: Sturm should remain unchanged

It was one of the biggest problems for the miners in the first half of the season: the lack of offensive power. The attacking trio of Simon Terodde, Marius Bülter and Sebastian Polter only scored a total of seven goals. With a total of 13 goals you have the worst offensive in the league.

Nevertheless, FC Schalke 04 apparently does not want to sign a new goal guarantor. This emerges from a report by the “Kicker”. The reason: Thomas Reis or his system. In this rest the high hopes of the bosses.

Rice upgrade over Frank Kramer

Many of the bad numbers can be explained by the appearance of FC Schalke 04 under ex-coach Frank Kramer. Under him, S04 almost exclusively used long balls. That didn’t help Terodde and Co. very much.

On the other hand, the appearance under Thomas Reis is different. He wants to play more football. The first signs could already be seen in the few games under him so far. According to “Kicker”, the S04 bosses hope that the strikers will “become more effective” under the new coach. That’s why you don’t want to get a new goalgetter.

FC Schalke 04: who should come

Instead, they are probably looking for suppliers for Terodde, Bülter and Polter. Two fast wingers should be brought in. Here the miners revealed major deficits. In addition, a central defender should also be on the plan to compensate for injury worries.

In the search for new players, however, FC Schalke 04 is traditionally limited. The tight cash register allows a maximum of a few loans, at best with purchase options. The royal blue fans should not expect big leaps in January.
