Arsenal & Liverpool Rekindle Interest In Bundesliga Star After Becoming Free Agent But £85,000 Per-Week Demands Threaten Deal, Turkish Giants Remain In Talks

Arsenal and Liverpool are back in the race for Bundesliga star Max Meyer according to various reports but the latest developments could come as a blow for Fenerbahce.

The Sun shared the news this morning but quoted 101goals as their source who in turn referenced the Sunday Express.

The Express meanwhile sourced Transfermarketweb. 

Now that we have gotten to the bottom of where the news emerged from we can focus on the main story.

The Reds and Gunners reportedly snubbed Meyer for demanding around £4.4m [€5m] which works our around £85,000 per-week.

The Premier League duo are back in the race for Meyer and have made another enquiry regarding the 23-year-old.

Meyer is currently a free agent after leaving Schalke at the end of the season.

Arsenal have already signed Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi this summer.

The Gunners could however, sign another player according to head coach Unai Emery who admitted he would sign a player for the right price.

Speaking last week, the Spanish manager stated: “We signed the players who we needed and only if one player is a big opportunity for us will we sign them.

“At the moment, I think the squad is complete.

“We will only sign another player if there is an opportunity to bring in that one player, or two players.”

Klopp is familiar with Meyer from his time managing in the Bundesliga.

Turkish-Football reported that Fenerbahce decided to try and push through a deal with several major clubs abandoning plans to sign Meyer due to his wage demands.

Meyer’s agent Roger Wittman has been in talks with Fenerbahce sporting director Damien Comolli.

The Yellow Canaries are not prepared to meet Meyer’s initial demands and put forward a counter offer with a sign on fee.
