After Liverpool had already put the cat on the ball before, other clubs have now also jumped on the car chasing the signature of Zimbabwe International Marvellous Nakamba.

Schalke 04 and Fiorentina are, according to Italian sources, only two of the interested clubs. They would have to put at least 12 million euros on the table for the defensive midfielder of blue-black.

Marvelous Nakamba who plays in the Belgian Pro League for top club FC Bruges is a robust defensive midfielder who has attracted attention with his aggressive style and quick switching play.

24 year old Marvelous Nakamba joined Club Brugge from Vitesse Arnhem last summer to Belgian champions for 3 million euros, his contract runs until 2021.

Competition from England, Italy and Germany as Fiorentina, Schalke 04, and Liverpool seem to be interested in Marvelous Nakamba. This season, he has already played 41 times for Bruges.

Schalke look the more desperate to sign the player after the departure of Leon Goretzka and Max Meyer and are in great need of a midfielder.

Schalke coach Christian Heidel has confirmed that “maximum 5 new players” should strengthen the club. Whether Marvelous Nakamba becomes one of the fives remains to be seen.
