Liverpool are reportedly weighing up a move for Germany’s £25.5m-rated international Max Meyer.
The Premier League outfit, who suffered a 2-0 defeat to West Ham United at the weekend, have been scouting the Schalke attacking midfielder ahead of the January transfer window.
The 20-year-old, who made his international debut for the World Cup winners back in May 2014, has scored three and assisted five goals in 24 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga side so far this season.
Meyer, who is renowned as one of Europe’s finest upcoming talents, is also said to be interesting the likes of FC Barcelona, AC Milan and Sevilla as well as Jurgen Klopp’s Reds over the course of this campaign.
However the German international’s contract at Schalke does not expire until 2018, meaning any potential suitor would have to meet the youngster’s £25.5m buyout clause to thrash out a deal this month.
