Leicester City are in talks with Schalke to sign midfielder Amine Harit on loan.
The 25-year-old, who was born in France but plays international football for Morocco, spent last season on loan at Marseille.
At the French club, he scored four goals and made five assists in 23 league matches.
Amine Harit could leave Schalke in the Bundesliga to join Leicester City on loan
He is likely to leave Schalke because the Bundesliga outfit are keen to offload players for financial reasons – although the Foxes are currently only investigating a loan deal.
Harit hasn’t played for Schalke so far this season.
Harit’s versatility means he could be used by Brendan Rodgers in a number 10 role or as a wide player.
Harit was part of Morocco’s squad at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but hasn’t featured in any of their three matches.
Schalke are believed to want Dutch defender Sepp van der Berg on loan from Liverpool
Meanwhile, Schalke are in talks to sign Liverpool centre-back Sepp van den Berg, 20, on loan.
The Dutch defender was previously on loan at Preston North End, where he made 61 appearances over an 18-month Championship spell at Deepdale.
However, there is no guarantee the Reds would be willing to let van den Berg leave Anfield, having previously rebuffed interest from several other Championship sides for loan deals.
