Arsenal are interested in signing German midfielder, Max Meyer on a free transfer, according to report from The Sun.
The 22-year-old, who opted not to extend his contract at Schalke 04 and instead become a free agent, looks an attainable target; although we would still have to fight off competition from Liverpool and possibly other European clubs.
Arsenal have long been linked with the player, who shone for the Germany Under-23s team at the Olympics in 2016 and could make a move for him this summer.
Unai Emery still wants more additions to the Arsenal midfield and would like the club to pursue a move for the talented player now that he won’t cost a transfer fee.
Despite signing the pair of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi and boasting the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil in our ranks, Meyer might offer something different in the middle of the park.
His efficiency and industry in attacking midfield will be a valuable asset. After bursting onto the scene in Germany, Meyer wants a move out of the Bundesliga to prove himself and establish himself as a regular player for the national team.
He is an attacking midfielder who is also adept playing as a deep-lying playmaker and is admired for his technique and crossing ability.
Despite his young age, he is not inexperienced, has already featured in 187 club matches for Schalke since joining the Rube-based outfit in 2012.
While we have a lot of options in midfield, he could be a valuable addition and the fact that he would cost no transfer fee is an added incentive.
