Arsenal & Liverpool Front Runners To Sign Bundesliga Midfielder

By on March 19, 2018

The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, the latest on Max Meyer…

Arsenal and Liverpool are the front runners to sign Max Meyer after Barcelona pulled out of the race to sign the Schalke midfielder this summer, according to a report in the Mirror.

Meyer has been with Schalke his entire career having joined the club as a youngster and he progressed through the youth system to become one the hottest prospects in German football.

The 22-year-old initially made his name as a winger but he’s excelled since being converted in to a deep-lying central midfielder this season and is now a key part of Domenico Tedesco’s starting eleven.

However, Meyer’s future at the Veltins Arena is in serious doubt as his contract expires in June and he’s so far rejected all attempts from Schalke to tie him down to an extension.

The situation has alerted several clubs throughout Europe with Arsenal, Liverpool and Barcelona among those to be strongly linked with the German international in recent months ahead of a free transfer move.

However, the Mirror are citing reports from Mundo Deportivo that claim Arsenal and Liverpool are now the front runners to sign Meyer after Barca withdrew their interest in the midfielder.

The newspaper says Meyer is a top target for the Gunners as Arsene Wenger looks to revamp his midfield options with Jack Wilshere yet to sign a new deal while Santi Cazorla’s career is in doubt due to a long-term injury.

Jurgen Klopp is also in the market for midfield reinforcements as Emre Can is tipped to leave Anfield when his contract runs out in June while the Merseysiders also need to sign a replacement for Philippe Coutinho.

We’ll have to wait and see how things develop over the coming months but I think Meyer would be an excellent signing on a free transfer if Arsenal or Liverpool are able to win the race for his signature.
