It looks likely to be another season in which Spurs challenge for the title only to fall agonisingly short, but a story from Bild has picked up spirits among Lilywhites supporters here in the Transfer Tavern, with the German outlet reporting that Max Meyer might be available this summer.
The 21-year-old playmaker is among the most highly-rated players in German football and is already a regular in the Schalke team despite his youthful age.
Spurs have been heavily aligned with Meyer of late and Bild claim that the Bundesliga club are ready for a summer ‘divorce’ with the player, with a €20m (£17.1m) fee mooted as enough to lure him away, while mentioning Tottenham as potential suitors.
The attacking midfielder, who can play on either flank or as a No.10, has been part of a disappointing season for the Gelsenkirchen side, who, barring a dramatic late-season turnaround, will not be playing any form of European football in 2017/18.
Spurs need to sign proven players this summer – agree?
