Young Boys right-back Kevin Mbabu has attracted interest from Schalke 04 who want to sign the defender this month, Nau.ch reports.
The Swiss champions are said to want around €12 million for the highly-rated right-back - a fee that Schalke are surely capable of paying.
'The Royal Blues' aren't the only team who have targeted the 23-year-old, though. He has also been linked with Eintracht Frankfurt, Mainz, VfL Wolfsburg, VfB Stuttgart and has reportedly drawn interest from the English Premier League as well.
In the summer, Mbabu was heavily linked with a move to Eintracht Frankfurt, where he would be able to reunite with former Young Boys coach Adi Hütter, but a deal never materialised.
Mbabu, who's under contract until 2020, has made 22 appearances for Young Boys this season with one goal and three assists to his name. He has played three games for the Swiss national team.
