Three reasons Tottenham must get a £30m deal for Max Meyer done

According to reports in The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a £30m move to sign unsettled Schalke attacking midfielder Max Meyer this summer.

The 21-year-old – who is currently featuring for Germany at the European Under-21 Championships – is keen to leave the Gelsenkirchen-based outfit in the coming weeks after they finished 10th in the Bundesliga and failed to qualify for European competition next season.

According to Bild, Schalke have put him up for sale and a move to north London would certainly meet his European ambitions after Spurs finished second in the Premier League table to automatically qualify for the group stages of the Champions League.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino was keen to sign the German starlet last year too according to The Sun, but was put off by the £45m price tag placed on his head, and signed Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle United instead.

With an exit for the attacking midfielder looking certain this summer, the Argentine may look to tie a transfer up for one of his long-term targets.
