Germany Under-21 captain Lewis Holtby will hold talks with Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham in January over an end-of-season move.
Holtby has told Schalke he will not sign a new contract and has set his heart on a free transfer move to the Premier League.
The 22-year-old midfielder can start talking to clubs in the New Year and Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs are all desperate to sign him on a pre-contract agreement.
Holtby's father is English and the midfielder had the opportunity to play for England before settling on an international career with Germany, where he was born.
A friend of Holtby's said: "There is a lot of English interest and the goal is to move to the Premier League."
Arsenal have regularly scouted Schalke this season and played against Holtby and the German club in the group stages of the Champions League.
But the Gunners face strong competition from Liverpool and Tottenham.
