Arsenal are preparing to battle Liverpool, Bayern Munich and AC Milan for the signature of Max Meyer this summer.

The Daily Star reports that all four clubs are interested in signing the German who is out of contract in the summer.

Meyer has impressed for Schalke this season, playing in a slightly deeper role under Domenico Tedesco.

Arsene Wenger is said to be hoping that Mesut Ozil can convince his fellow countryman to make the switch to the Emirates this summer.

Schalke will be desperate to keep hold of Meyer this summer after losing Leon Goretzka, who has agreed to join Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Club CEO Christian Heidel has admitted that the Bundesliga outfit will try to keep the midfielder at the Veltins-Arena.

Meyer has been ever-present for Schalke this season as he helps the club push for a place in the Champions League spots.
