Schalke open to Farfan offer

Bundesliga club want €10million or more for Peruvian

Jefferson Farfan: Peruvian winger's contract with Schalke ends at the end of the season

Schalke have revealed that they are open to the idea of parting with Jefferson Farfan during the January transfer window but only for at least €10million.

The Peru international's current contract with the German club expires at the end of the season and he has been linked with a number of teams.

The Gelsenkirchen-based club admit that they would be interested to hold discussions with potential suitors for a transfer during January but only at a certain price, while disclosing that no official offers have come in yet for the 27-year-old.

"Jefferson Farfan is a key player for our club," Schalke general manager Horst Heldt told Reviersport newspaper.

"Therefore, I would reject any idea like another club coming in the winter transfer window to offer us a compensation of €1million for a deal involving him.

"Still we have to think twice if there is a club lining up a bid that feel that money is not an issue, like Anzhi Makhachkala of Russia for example.

"If such a club offer €10 million or more, we would have to consider that.

"We are aware that there are clubs considering Jefferson Farfan, but we have yet to receive a bid for him from any other club."
