Lewis Holtby’s agent has promised some clarification over his client’s future tomorrow.
The all-action Germany midfielder’s contract at current club Schalke expires in the summer and he has been chased by a number of clubs.
Amongst those who can be classed as fans of the player are English Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool, while in Italy, Andrea Stramaccioni’s Inter would love to drape the midfielder in Nerazzurri colours.
Schalke though have been working hard to keep Holtby and recently managed to persuade the player’s team-mate Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to pen a new deal.
And what is happening with Holtby should become a little clearer tomorrow, his agent Marcus Noack promised.
"Schalke will announce their position tomorrow", the midfielder’s representative told Germany daily TZ.
Noack also used the opportunity to stamp on talk that the 22-year-old may move to Bayern Munich.
"There is no truth, that’s a rumour", he said.
"Bayern have not enquired about Lewis Holtby."
It remains to be seen what Holtby will decide to do, although Schalke sporting director Horst Heldt has admitted he knows the player has an English dream.
However, Heldt has warned the midfielder that he will enjoy more consistent Champions League football if he remains at Schalke.
