Cottagers boss is well regarded in Germany after his time in charge with Hamburg and he could be tempted by Champions League football
Schalke are keen to make Martin Jol their next manager, writes the Sunday People.
The German club are looking for a successor to sacked head coach Huub Stevens – and have put youth team boss Jens Keller in charge until the end of the season.
They are taking their time to draw up a list of candidates but Fulham boss Jol is high on their agenda.
Jol, 56, has coached in Germany before, enjoying a successful year with Hamburg before moving on to boss Dutch giants Ajax.
Champions League outfit Schalke, who face Galatasaray in the knockout stages next month, believe Jol could be tempted to take on the challenge of leading them forward from the end of the season.
Jol has been in charge of Fulham since 2011 and the club told him in November they would take up an option to extend his
contract from the end of this campaign and keep him for an extra year.
But Schalke are expected to make an approach to discover how much it would cost to take him to the Bundesliga – if he is interested.
Better news for the Cottagers is that injury-hit winger Simon Davies will return to training this week.
The 33-year-old former Wales international has been sidelined with knee and hip problems and has made just seven first-team appearances in the past 18 months,
Davies came through a midweek reserve team outing unscathed as he steps up his fight for fitness.
The ex-Tottenham winger knows he needs to hit the ground running if he is to earn a new deal at Craven Cottage.
He is among a crop of Fulham players, which also includes captain Brede Hangeland, whose contracts expire in the summer.
Manager Jol said: “Simon is almost a project and it will be good to have him back.
“We will ease him back in slowly as he is still a few weeks away from rejoining the first team.
“He has been so unlucky. Fingers crossed he can now stay injury-free.”
Meanwhile, Fulham boss Jol will make an £8million offer for France midfielder Yann M’Vila.
