The 21 year old’s current contract expires in June, and it seems as though the playmaker has opted to move clubs after rejecting a new deal from Schalke back in June. Speaking to Bild two months ago, Meyer commented that he had decided not to extend his deal at the Bundesliga side, but at the start of this month he revealed that he was keeping his options open.
Now, it seems his decision has been formally made. The Gunners have been linked on and off with the midfield playmaker over the past year (mostly recently earlier this month). They signed his former team mate Sead Kolasinac earlier this summer on a free transfer, and could now make a similar move for the German international.
Meyer did struggle for form last season, scoring two goals and five assists in 39 matches for Schalke, while has has made just two substitute appearances this season. He does however have four full international caps already to his name, and is seen as one of Germany’s best young players.
