Arsenal are eyeing up a move for Max Meyer this summer as they plan for life without Jack Wilshere.
According to a report in today’s Daily Telegraph, Arsenal are preparing themselves for Wilshere’s departure this summer.
The midfielder has been offered a new deal by the club but Wilshere is refusing to take a paycut despite his lengthy injury history.
Wilshere missed both England’s friendlies over the international break as his knee problem (tendinopathy) flared up due to the heavy training load Gareth Southgate’s coaching team put him under.
Steve Bould, stepping up at the pre-Stoke press conference for a voiceless Arsene Wenger, said the player is fit and should be involved against Stoke on Sunday.
Max Meyer has been on Arsenal’s radar for a while now if you believe reports in the press.
The 22-year-old is also out of contract in the summer and with Arsenal facing the prospect of also losing Aaron Ramsey, and Santi Cazorla’s career over barring the announcement, Meyer could represent a great investment for the club.
The Telegraph claim that Meyer has been identified by Sven Mislintat’s scouting department as he looks to strengthen the spine of the team.
At various times over the past year, Meyer has been described as the perfect replacement for Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla and now Jack Wilshere, so which player is he most like?
