Max Meyer: Insists he is happy at Schalke

Liverpool could spend another £28million on their midfield with the addition of Max Meyer, while Moussa Sissoko is wanted by Real Madrid and Juventus.


Liverpool may have strengthened their midfield with the signing of Georginio Wijnaldum but it seems Jurgen Klopp still sees room for improvement.

German publication Bild are reporting that Klopp will go shopping again in the Bundesliga with a view to signing Max Meyer from Schalke.

The 20-year-old scored five goals and contributed eight assists in 32 Bundesliga appearances last season. Meyer won’t come cheap, though, with the price of £28million quoted by Bild.

Klopp is set to face disappointment in his pursuit of Ben Chilwell, with The Telegraph reporting that the young left-back will sign a new five-year contract with champions Leicester.

Moussa Sissoko is desperate to leave Newcastle and it seems likely that the midfielder will get his wish.

The France international starred at Euro 2016, prompting Newcastle to raise their asking price to over £30million, but that does not appear to have put off Europe’s big hitters.

The Sun claims Real Madrid are preparing an offer having missed out on Andre Gomes, who left Valencia to join Barcelona.

Juventus are also in the market for a midfielder, with Paul Pogba seemingly set for Manchester United. The Serie A champions have drawn up a shortlist that, according to the Daily Mail, includes Sissoko as well as Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic.
