Official: Schalke sign experienced striker Vedad Ibisevic

Schalke have announced the signing of veteran forward Vedad Ibisevic on a one-year deal.

The 36-year-old left Hertha BSC at the end of the 2019-20 season and has since been a free agent.

Ibisevic has an impressive tally of 127 goals and 52 assists in 340 Bundesliga games.

Only relegated Fortuna Dusseldorf scored fewer goals than Schalke last season and Ibisevic could help solve that problem.

According to reports in Germany, the Bosnian will earn just €100,000-per-year at Schalke before bonuses.

The grey-haired striker said he is still motivated and is looking forward to a new challenge.

“Schalke 04 is a really cool club, so I didn’t have to think twice about joining,” said Ibisevic. “I am highly motivated and I want to be successful with the team.

“I want to play my part with my experience and qualities.”
