Bundesliga outfit Schalke are interested in signing versatile defender Yuto Nagatomo from Inter this summer.

The reliable 28-year-old endured a frustrating campaign with the Nerazzurri, which was blighted by injury and interrupted by the Asian Cup in January.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report German side Schalke have identified Nagatomo as a potential transfer target, after the Japanese international struggled to get back into coach Roberto Mancini’s starting lineup.

The former Cesena man has also attracted attention from Sampdoria, but the Bundesliga appears are more likely destination for the full-back.

Nagatomo managed just 14 Serie A appearances this season, failing to register a goal or an assist for the Nerazzurri.
