Schalke Eye Chelsea Star Forssell

German soccer team Schalke 04 are interested in signing Chelsea's Finnish international striker Mikael Forssell providing the Premiership champions do not put a huge price on his head. Forssell, 24, has struggled to find a regular spot in the star-studded Chelsea line-up and was loaned out to Birmingham City last season before an injury forced him to return to Stamford Bridge prematurely. Schalke stand second in the Bundesliga, and Champions League qualification could enable the Gelsenkirchen club to launch a multi-million move for the talented Forssell. "If it is possible to finance the deal we have to think about a player such as Forssell," said sporting director Andreas Muller. Forssell experienced playing in the German top-flight in 2003 when a successful loan spell at Borussia Mönchengladbach saw him score seven goals in 16 games
