Reports in the German media have suggested that former Real Madrid legend Raul could be on his way to England, with Blackburn front runners to sign the striker.
The players future in Germany is uncertain and he has been unsettled at Schalke this season.
Bild reports the veteran forward is uncertain of his position in the side and feels that he is being restricted in his play.Although Raul is contracted to Schalke until the end of the 2012 season it is possible that he will be offloaded if a suitable offer was received.
Blackburn Rovers have been mentioned as a possible move for Raul, with former Real Madrid man Michel Salgado trying to convince him to join Rovers.
Raul was linked with a number of high-profile Premier League clubs when he left Madrid last year but he chose Schalke instead.
