Tottenham launch bid for Schalke midfielder Max Meyer

Tottenham are launching a bid for Schalke midfielder Max Meyer.

The Sun says Spurs look set to make a £17.5million move for German Under-21 star Meyer.

Mauricio Pochettino was quoted a staggering £39m fee when he tried to sign the Schalke winger last summer.

But now Meyer, 21, is available for less than half that figure after refusing to sign a new contract with the German club.

Tottenham scouts were in Poland at the weekend to see Meyer score his team's opener in their 2-0 win against the Czech Republic at the Euro Under-21 finals.

And Pochettino is keen to wrap up a deal for a player who fits perfectly into the club's policy of signing promising young talent whose value will increase.
