Bundesliga challengers Schalke will attempt a second high profile transfer having already persuaded Real Madrid legend Raul to join their ranks; the Royal Blues will now try to snap up Manchester City's wantaway Brazilian Robinho.
Kicker in Germany have reported that the 26-year-old former Real Madrid forward is wanted to partner his former team-mate. Robinho himself showed desperation to return to Santos in Brazil, where he has been on loan since becoming unsettled in England.
If Schalke are unable to persuade Robinho to stay in Europe, they will focus on Milan forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. The Dutchman, another former Real Madrid striker, has come under criticism for not impressing in his debut season in Italy.
Both strikers have been linked with moves this summer but it is up to coach Felix Magath to work his magic to persuade either to join.
