Tottenham will make another move for Max Meyer in the summer, while Son Heung-min has been linked with a move to PSG
Tottenham reportedly made a bid for Meyer last summer, but were rebuffed by Schalke after failing to meet their £45m asking fee, with Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino turning to Moussa Sissoko as an alternative.
The report states that Spurs will make another move for him in the summer, and are encouraged by the fact that Meyer will only have one year left on his contract by then, seeing as he is yet to sign an extension with the Bundesliga side.
Schalke will likely have to sell Meyer at a lower price or risk losing him for free, so Tottenham have a good chance of signing him at the end of the season.
The Sun also quote Meyer as saying this when asked of Tottenham interest :
“I know that interest was there and the club was asked. But Schalke immediately put a stop to it. So the matter was settled. Of course, I have dealt with it. But I also know what I have at Schalke, and I like to play for this club.”
Son setting on White Hart Lane
Meanwhile, reports have emerged linking Tottenham midfielder Son Heung-min with a move to French giants Paris-Saint Germain. The Standard report that PSG are interested in the player and that he is “admired” by the club, amid uncertainty over the futures of Angel Di Maria and Jese.
The South-Korean player has scored 6 goals and picked up 3 assists in all competitions for Tottenham this season, but is still not considered one of Pochettino’s key players. They also state that Son was likely to be sold back to a Bundesliga club at the end of last season – despite only joining at the beginning of that campaign – but that Pochettino decided to retain the player.
It is highly unlikely that Tottenham will be willing to sell him in January should PSG come calling, but with the rumours of their interest in Max Meyer, it is possible that Tottenham could be willing to do business in the summer. PSG are currently trying to tie up a deal for Julian Draxler and could stay patient if they manage to land their man.
