Liverpool lead the chase for Schalke’s Meyer.
Schalke 04 teenager Max Meyer is attracting much interest from the Premier League and Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are all interested in the 18-year-old, according to the Daily Express.
The Reds are reportedly leading the chase for the midfielder, who would cost around £8m, with manager Brendan Rodgers keen on landing the German as soon as possible.
Rodgers appears to be learning from mistakes made in the past by doing his transfer dealings early and the Merseysiders have already signed Rickie Lambert and Emre Can, from Southampton and Bayer Leverkusen respectively.
Meyer has been greatly impressing in the Bundesliga over the past 12 months, scoring seven goals for Schalke and earning vital experience in the Champions League as well – making 41 appearances in all competitions in 2013/14.
In fact the youngster impressed so much that national team coach Joachim Loew included the starlet in his 30-man provisional squad for the 2014 World Cup – although he didn’t make the final cut.
Meyer has just the one cap for Germany to date, but with the press in his home nation likening the attacking midfielder to Bayern Munich’s Mario Goetze, then that number is surely set to increase.
The teenage ace generally operates in the No.10 role, but can also play in a deeper position and even on the flanks.
His potential makes it unsurprising that both the Gunners and the Blues are also interested in the Germany international.
