​​Schalke 04 and Germany midfielder Max Meyer is subject to late interest in the transfer window from ​Premier League side Arsenal and ​La Liga giants Barcelona. 


According to German journalist Torsten Rumpf, who works for SportBild, the Gunners have been scouting the 22-year-old for some time and could make a late move for Olympic silver medalist on transfer deadline day.

It isn't only ​Arsenal who are interested in the diminutive midfielder, as ​Barcelona are also interested in Meyer, particularly due to his current contract situation.


Meyer, like ​fellow Schalke teammate Leon Goretzka, is into the final six months of his contract, meaning he could leave the Veltins-Arena for nothing in the summer, with his current situation also meaning he can freely speak to clubs from outside Germany throughout the remainder of his contract. 

Despite Meyer failing to score or provide an assist for Domenico Tedesco's side in the ​Bundesliga this season, Meyer has become an integral part of the German side, with Tedesco transforming Meyer into a holding midfielder, utilising his passing talents from deep.


It looks set to be a busy day at the Emirates Stadium this transfer deadline day, as ​the club have announced the signing of Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while a move for Meyer could happen, especially with the contract situation of Mesut Ozil, who could leave for nothing in the summer.
