NORWICH CITY keeper Tim Krul is on Schalke’s watch-list for next season.
The big Dutchman is fancied by David Wagner’s outfit as a replacement for Bayern Munich-bound Alexander Nubel.
Krul is under contract but the Canaries may do a deal if they are relegated.
The 31-year-old was the Canaries' hero in midweek when he saved two penalties in a shootout against Tottenham to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.
But he could do nothing to prevent Daniel Farke's team crashing back to reality on Saturday.
Norwich lost 1-0 to Sheffield United, a result that leaves them six points from safety.
Farke said: "We are disappointed. We wanted at least a point to keep our run going and win some valuable points in the fight to stay in this league.
"Performance-wise if I am honest after 120 minutes at Tottenham I cannot ask for any more.
"In all the statistics we were better. More possession, more shots, more shots on target, we won 50 per cent of our duels and 60 per cent of our aerial duels.
"But that proves why football is not about statistics because the only one that counts is the goals. It is about effectiveness."
