Schalke's Holtby open to Everton move

Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby admits he has been a big Everton fan since he was a kid and would be open to playing for the club.

The 21-year old German international says he is happy at Schalke for now but one day may be keen to head to Merseyside and play for the Toffees.

"I have always said that my aim is to come to the Premier League one day because I love the league," said Holtby.

"My father is English and of course my favourite teams are Everton and Arsenal.

"My father was born in England and was an Everton fan since the age of five. He immediately infected me with the Everton virus! Since then I have been an Everton fan and have always followed their games.

"My thoughts now are first with Schalke but you never know."
