Schalke 04 sees seemingly at Leipzig Jewel

In his second loan in Belgium, Frederik Jäkel made the breakthrough. The young center defender, who is still bound to RB Leipzig until 2024, in the Saxony but probably not a probation opportunity in the future, has long been called a series of well-known interested parties on the plan. One of them is the FC Schalke 04.

Even with his signature at KV Oostende, the expectations of Frederik Jäkel were huge. The winner of the Fritz-Walter Medal in Bronze 2020 urged the call ahead of being one of the largest defense talents in Germany.

After an elaborate debut in Belgium, the 20-year-old has now been enforced, was used in the current season in 20 first-divisional encounters and even collected three scorer points (two goals, a template).

As the “Mitteldeutsche Zeitung” reports, Jäkel, who was appointed for the first time in the squad of the German U21 national team in the past October, has aroused great interest with his achievements in many clubs from Germany and abroad.

The FC Basel has been particularly intensive to have recruited the Youngster in recent days. In Switzerland, the transfer period ends only on 15 February. Currently, however, little speaks for a premature end of Jäkels’s guest performance in Oostende.

In addition, a whole series of German clubs should also have the sensors outstretched according to the large defensive man.

In addition to three non-well-known Bundesliga, the second league representative FC Schalke 04, Werder Bremen, HSV, 1. FC Nuremberg, SV Darmstadt 98 and Hansa Rostock should be in the raffle.

Jäkels Consultant Jan Heuckeroth already indicated “rblive” that a fixed change could be an option in summer.

“RB is Freddy at heart, but the club now has to decide if you see the player in Leipzig in the medium term in Leipzig. We want to have an association as the next station, who drives the leap into the 1st league,” says the agent.
