Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to urge their club to sign Max Meyer this summer after Schalke confirmed he will be leaving them in June.

The 22-year-old Germany international will be a free agent this summer, and news of his availability will have Europe’s elite clubs on high alert.

Tottenham have been strongly linked with Meyer in recent years, with Football London reporting that “everything about him screams Tottenham transfer” given his age, talent and availability within just weeks.
