Liverpool rejected chance to sign Max Meyer, fans react

Liverpool have been linked to a handful of players over the course of the transfer window, but only one signing has been made so far.

Fabinho agreed a switch to Anfield from Monaco with the hope of providing an anchor in midfield.

Naby Keita has also arrived this summer, but his transfer was struck with RB Leipzig a year ago.

Most of the targets have either been players that would strengthen the midfield or would replace Loris Karius in goal.

One individual, who has also been linked to Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, is Max Meyer.

The central midfielder, who is valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, will be available on a free transfer this summer having failed to agree a new contract with Schalke.

According to a recent report in Bild, Liverpool are among a handful of clubs that have rejected the chance to sign Meyer due to his wage demands.

It is believed that the 22-year-old is requesting a salary of more than £4m a year.

Liverpool fans have been posting their reactions on social media.
