Max Meyer is a hot property and several big teams are in for him, according to rumors. Today, French outlet Le10Sport has said that Arsène Wenger wants the German to replace Jack Wilshere next season at Arsenal, but he’ll face competition from FC Barcelona, AC Milan, and Bayern Munich.
The Schalke 04 midfielder is said to have turned down offers to renew with his club and he could leave for free this summer.
Is Le10Sport to be trusted on the matter of linking Meyer with Barcelona? Well, Sport Bild said in February that Meyer does interest the Catalans. However, Francesc Aguilar writing for Mundo Deportivo said that Barça said “no, thank you” to Meyer’s agents just a few weeks ago. Aguilar says Barcelona do not want to sign another midfielder after getting Arthur Melo, since they want to keep a lane open for Carles Aleñá to join up from the B team.
