I know Holtby is super versatile, and really really talented, but I'm not sure he's needed right now.

Striker needs to be our priority, and realistically I hope we buy 2.
Sahin's the only one of those guys that's actually better than Holtby, and he'll be gone next summer when they'd realistically be looking to bring Lewis in. I'm big fan of Allen and Suso's talent, and Lucas is a fantastic holder, but once he settled in Holtby would be the best of the bunch, of this I have no question. Draxler may surpass him one day and Farfan's a beast, but Holtby's the best player on a Schalke team that's very strong right now and offers him CL football.
