Schalke 04 remain hopeful that Alexander Nübel will extend his contract, which runs until 2020, but 'The Royal Blues' face competition from numerous top clubs, says the goalkeeper's agent, Stefan Backs.

"Alex is not allowed to talk to other clubs until January. He's currently behaving in accordance with his contract," Backs said on the podcast 'Fever Pit´ch' and added:

"Clubs inform me that they're interested, and I then pass it on to Alex, so he knows when a club shows concrete interest in him.

"If he agrees with a club, he will have to reject five or six other big clubs. But Schalke have also made a very, very good offer, and that's not a small club either," Backs said.

Nübel, 22, has made 28 appearances for Schalke 04.
