The agent of Schalke’s Kolasinac: “Roma is a fantastic club, I think he will leave in January.” Gordon Stipic-Wipfler, the agent of Schalke 04 left-back Sead Kolasinac, spoke today and addressed the rumors surrounding his client as Roma have been heavily linked with a potential January move for the player.

Will Kolasinac leave Schalke in January?
I think Kolasinac will leave in January but I don’t know where he will go.

Does the player have many suitors? Roma is paying attention to him.
I have no certainties about which club will be the next for Kolasinac, for me, there isn’t a favorite. Roma is a fantastic club and has wonderful supporters, it’s one of the major European teams and they were closely following the player last summer. It must be said, however, that there are others following Kolasinac, even big Premier League clubs such as Manchester City. The player is doing very well during this latest period and was voted ‘Man of the Match’ last week in Schalke’s last Bundesliga match. He has dual citizenship and is an EU player. Certainly the boy will decide himself who his next team will be.

The player’s valuation?
€8 million.

Do you think that a loan with an option to buy in the summer is possible in January?
Yes, I think it’s possible.
