Schalke 04 have cooled their interest in Dodi Lukebakio, because he's too expensive, Kicker reports.

'The Royal Blues' have been linked with the Watford player who spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Fortuna Düsseldorf with great success.


But Watford want around €20 million for the 21-year-old, and that's way more than Schalke would be ready to pay for him, as per the report.

According to Kicker, a loan deal is out of the question as well due to Lukebakio's wage demands of around €5 million a year.

Lukebakio scored 14 goals in 34 appearances for Fortuna Düsseldorf in the 2018/19 season.
