Premier League side Crystal Palace have submitted a loan offer with an option to buy for Algerian midfielder Nabil Bentaleb.
The central midfielder, who has barely featured all season for Schalke, could return to London after a spell with Tottenham under Pochettino.
Roy Hodgson is keen to replace Victor Camarasa, who recently moved to Alaves. The Eagles also recently missed out on Danny Drinkwater.
Bentaleb is said to prefer a move to England over the likes of Marseille and AC Milan. He helped Algeria reach the last 16 of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Follow all the Algerian football news in English with DZ Football.
