Schalke midfielder open to Everton switch
Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby has admitted he would welcome the chance to move to boyhood club Everton.
German international Holtby, who was not included in Joachim Low's Euro 2012 squad, holds dual nationality as his father is English and the Schalke midfielder admits he would love to test himself in the Premier League. The 21-year-old insists his focus is on his current employers at present, but Holtby admits he would be tempted by a move to Goodison Park if Everton boss David Moyes were to make an offer. "I have always said that my aim is to come to the Premier League one day because I love the league," Holtby is quoted as saying by Sky Sports. "My father is English and of course my favourite teams are Everton and Arsenal. "My father was born in England and was an Everton fan since the age of five. He immediately infected me with the Everton virus! Since then I have been an Everton fan and have always followed their games. "My thoughts now are first with Schalke but you never know." Moyes is keen to strengthen his squad in the summer and the Everton boss will be eager to add to his midfield, with questions remaining of the futures of reported Chelsea target Marouane Fellaini and Tim Cahill, who has been linked with a move to the UAE.
