Tottenham are set to step up their interest in Schalke star Max Meyer, according to The Mirror.

The German attacker has just 12 months remaining on his Schalke contract and has turned down a new deal

Earlier this week, Meyer told reporters he is happy at Schalke but remains open about the possibility of leaving this summer.

“I am completely open on my future,” he said. “Let’s see what happens. It is not the case that I will definitely go. I never said I would change clubs — let alone this summer — I just did not renew the contract.

“I am really looking forward to the new season and I am happy to be here.”

Spurs reportedly made an approach for the 21-year-old last summer but Schalke turned them down.

At the time, the Bundesliga club valued Meyer at around £30 million. His contract situation means he is now worth significantly less.

A move for Meyer will probably depend on whether Tottenham sign Ross Barkley — there might not be room for both players.

  1. Don`t know this young man I am afraid but I don`t believe Barkley is not good enough for Spurs unless unless MP see`s something We can`t see he looks slow and heavy , but most important of all I think Is we need star quality experienced players right ” Now ” there is no time to wait for young blood to mature , our poor starts to the season Is always a worry and it a bigger worry when we get beat by lesser teams then going like bats out of hell to claw back those lost points .

    • Johnny who would you have us sign? Bear in mind that whoever that player is, his wage demands have to be no more than 100K a week. Why, because if we bring in someone like Chicharito on 140K the line to Levy’s door asking for a raise will be a long one. I’d love to see Isco join but the wages and transfer fee make that unrealistic, hell if we’re going to pipe dream I’d take Gareth Bale back. The reality is Spurs can’t afford the “Star quality experienced players” and HAVE TO gamble on youngsters. this might change when the stadium is built, or the club is sold to a Billionaire, but until then the Neymars of this world aren’t on our radar, and even the Chicharitos come with too many additional issues. So bring on Max Meyer & Ross Barkley and let’s hope Poch can work his magic.

  2. We need another centre half Wimmer is good but I would use him as a left sided defensive holding midfielder. He has a sweet left foot and can pick a pass like vetongen. William Cavalho from sporting is another midfielder I would like. We can then use Alli up front when giving Kane a rest and use Erikson just behind. Then use dembele on the left. Jansen is staying and he could be used in the cup games against the lesser opposition. We can then spend money on another right back and a two footer pacey winger. I would not of got rid of Sissosko.
