Schalke defender Benedikt Howedes has revealed that a move to England would 'be an interesting destination' and has hinted at a move to Liverpool.
Howedes, who has starred in the Bundesliga at Schalke throughout his entire career to date, has admitted that he could complete a move away from the club in the future.
The 27-year-old is recognised as one of the finest defenders in Germany and has over 30 caps for the national side.

It's far from certain that new Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will swoop for Howedes, but it appears that the towering defender would be interested in linking up with his compatriot.
Speaking to Bild, as per Goal.com, Howedes stated: “A move abroad excites me. England would for sure be an interesting destination.
“Currently I am with Schalke. There are no deals sorted. But of course, for a footballer there are some clubs that are more interesting than others.
“English football is very fortunate to have someone like Klopp in the league, Liverpool is a club with great tradition and values.”
Let's be honest, the back-line that Klopp has inherited from Brendan Rodgers won't exactly fill him with confidence in his pursuit of success on Merseyside.
The likes of Mamadou Sakho, Kolo Toure, Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel have all had their problems in recent years, so recruiting in the defensive department may well have to become a priority for the revered coach. One thing is for sure, it looks set to be an interesting period for all involved with the club.
