Hoppe attracting interest from Premier League

Earlier this month, Matthew Hoppe earned his first pro-contract with Schalke 04 because he is having a breakout season in the Bundesliga this year. The 19-year-old has scored five goals in 11 appearances this season and his performances are catching the eye of several Premier League clubs.

This is Hoppe’s first year with Schalke’s first team and he has already bagged a hat-trick and scored in consecutive matches this season. According to multiple reports, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham have shown recent interest for Hoppe due to his performances.

Hoping to keep Schalke in Bundesliga

Hoppe signed a contract extension until 2023 and right now he is trying to help Schalke avoid relegation because they are in last place with nine points from 21 matches and a record of 1-6-14. The American striker has scored three more goals than any other player all season for Schalke.

The attacking prospect is also one of the best forwards for the United States men’s national team and several Premier League scouts have been impressed with him during his first half-season with the first team. If Schalke can’t avoid relegation, several teams would be interested in signing him for the 2021/22 campaign and according to transfermarkt, his current market value is $3.30 million.
