Arsenal are also interested in signing German midfielder Max Meyer, according to the latest reports from Germany.
The Barcelona, Liverpool and Spurs target was, we recently revealed, offered last summer to AC Milan by intermediaries, but the Rossoneri – who still like him – decided not to take things further because they had already signed a similar player in Hakan Calhanoglu.
Bild write, in fact, that the Catalans have actually contacted the 22-year-old’s representatives, though it is as yet unsure whether they will make an offer for him.
Schalke are looking to convince their man to stay, but he is out of a deal in the summer, as is Leon Goretzka, who has already chosen Bayern Munich.
The Gelsenkirchen has offered the winger/attacking midfielder a deal worth €5.5m, but Meyer wants to take some time out to weigh his options, with a decision not expected before March.
Arsenal were recently linked with a deadline day move for him after it became apparent that Goretzka would remain in Germany.
