Schalke, Werder Bremen seek talks with Everton boss Moyes
With his contract at Goodison Park ending in June and, having so far failed to agree a new one, Moyes' future on Merseyside remains in doubt.
And the Scot's recent comment that he has ambitions to manage abroad - and, specifically, in Germany - is triggering serious interest from the two Bundesliga giants.
A Schalke source said: "Moyes is highly regarded in Germany and Schalke are definitely monitoring his situation at Everton.
"If he ends up leaving there in the summer, they will be at the front of the queue."
