Schalke 04 confirmed that their dazzling playmaker Max Meyer would be leaving in the summer, and Liverpool fans are desperate to see him at Anfield.
The 22-year-old Germany Under-21 international will be a free agent and will leave Schalke in June, and news of his availability will have Europe’s elite clubs on high alert.
Liverpool have been consistently linked with Meyer, although Premier League rivals Arsenal are said to have an interest too.
The news was posted on the official Schalke 04 Twitter page on Thursday morning:

And the news has got Liverpool fans excited, with one fan said that Meyer would be an “unbelievable” signing.
He’s certainly got bags of promise although it’s fair to say he’s not the finished article after being shifted from an attacking midfield position to more of a deep playmaker.
However, under Jurgen Klopp you have to imagine that he would live up to his huge potential – and it’s a move that Liverpool fans are desperate to see in the summer.
Here are the best reactions from excited Liverpool fans hoping to see another big name arrive at Anfield:
With Max Meyer 100% leaving Schalke at the end of the season, I'd love to see him join #LFC
"Max will definitely leave Schalke in the summer. We are dealing with this situation professionally. – Christian Heidel Schalke CEO

Max Meyer on a free transfer would be an unbelievable signing for Liverpool! He'd be a brilliant attacking midfield option, something we're severely lacking right now! #LFC
