Max Meyer’s name hardly needs an introduction as the Schalke midfielder has made a substantial amount of impact for the Royal Blues. Meyer emerged through the youth ranks of Schalke and has been more than a handy asset to the German Bundesliga outfit’s senior side for quite some time now. However, he is set to depart from the Veltins-Arena in the summer.

Schalke were desperate to extend his contract, with the existing one set to expire at the end of the season. However, Meyer has refused to commit his future to his current club and is keen to venture into a new side next season. The Miners seem to have finally given up on their attempts to persuade him for an extension and he has apparently fallen on the radar of Arsenal and Liverpool. However, Juventus have also emerged as a candidate to sign him in the summer.

Liverpool’s interest to sign him should really intrigue the football fraternity. Jurgen Klopp, the German gaffer at the Merseyside outfit, possesses plenty of knowledge about the German international, which he acquired during his time with Borussia Dortmund. Given the calibre Meyer possesses and considering that he is seemingly likely to cost a compensation fee of around £8million, the Reds might fancy aiming for him.

Capable of plying his trade as a central defensive midfielder, central midfielder as well as a central attacking midfielder, the 22-year-old is an astute passer of the ball and a cunning reader of the game. He showcases immense work-rate in the middle of the park and has makes shrewd tackles and interceptions time and again to save the blushes of his side.

Liverpool attacking prowess has been a treat to the eye for every football fan this season. However, the other departments have let them down on quite a few occasions, especially in the midfield since the departure of their Brazilian maestro Philipe Coutinho in January. The inclusion of a player like Meyer might bring some peace to Klopp and help him rebuild the midfield around the 22-year-old German ace.

It goes without saying that Max Meyer would be a dazzling signing for the Reds. Though he might not be a huge upgrade over Coutinho, he has settled really well in his career at the Bundesliga despite his young age and should be able to help Liverpool in their endeavours in the coming seasons and make them a potential candidate for pursuing the highest glory in the Premier League, which has eluded them so far.
