But Newcastle have also been reported to be interested in bringing John Arne Riise from Roma, initially on loan, and are also said to be tracking Blackburn’s former Liverpool player Stephen Warnock.
But there is little chance Blackburn, who are below Newcastle in the league, will agree to let Stephen go in January, and Roma may elect to keep Riise, who has recently regained his first team starting place.
Marcel Schafer is a 24 year-old German, who has played 42 times for Wolfsburg since moving there from 1860 München in 2007. He played 91 times for 1860 München, after he joined them in 2003.
He scored 3 goals for 1860 München and has scored 6 goals so far for 1860 München, and he stands over 6’ tall.
Marcel has a single cap for Germany, which he received in their last game, on November 19th, 2008 in the 2-1 defeat to England.
