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.
