Chelsea and Tottenham are among the teams interested in signing young Schalke goalkeeper Alexander Nubel.

According to Kicker, as cited on Calcio Mercato, Chelsea will rival Spurs, PSG and Atletico Madrid for the 22-year-old.

Nubel is widely considered as one of the better up and coming young goalkeepers in the Bundesliga and after making 18 league appearances last season, he’ll certainly have his eyes on the number one spot at Schalke.

Keen to oust the experienced Ralf Fahrmann in between the sticks, Nubel will be hoping to impress under David Wagner next season.

The performances he has put in already for the German side haven’t gone unnoticed, with top teams across Europe keeping a close eye on him. Standing at an impressive 6’3”, Nubel is certainly an imperious figure.

Chelsea are currently under a transfer ban, but Nubel looks to be a player that they will keep on their radar, should he remain at Schalke beyond the current summer window.
