Arsenal are in search for a long term replacement of Santi Cazorla and they may have one on the cards and more glittering thing is that, they can get their man absolutely free.
Meyer is a four time German International
Arsenal have added some midfielders off late, but Arsene Wenger is still open to add some more and reports claim that the most suitable for them will be Max Meyer of Schalke, who is out of contract at the end of the season and the Gunners can get him for nothing.
With Wilshere and Ramsey’s future still unclear, Wenger is said to be looking for more midfield options, and Meyer has impressed him big time. The Schalke midfielder is versatile and can play as an attacking midfielder, but recently he was also used in defensive role and has done exceedingly well in that as well. The talks of him compares the 22 year old with Cazorla, who is good in both going forward and also thrived in a holding midfield role at the Emirates.
Meyer is set to leave Schalke
Telegraph reported that the Gunners are currently eyeing to contact with his representatives for a possible move as the player looks certain to leave Schalke.
“At the moment we can and must expect that Max leaves the club in the summer. Everything suggests that,” Schalke’s sporting director Christian Heidel admitted recently.
“At the moment there is no offer from us and no wish from Max to have a conversation again,” he added.

The four time Germany International has also gained attractions from Liverpool, Tottenham in the past and Italian side AS Roma are also said to be monitoring his situation. But the Gunners do have upper hand because Meyer’s style of play suits with Arsenal’s more of possessional football.
