CM: AC Milan battling Juve, Premier League duo for Schalke star

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will battle rivals Juventus for the signature of one Schalke star, according to a report.

Calciomercato claims that the Serie A duo will battle for Max Meyer, who has been impressive in his new central midfield role recently.

Both sides are apparently keen to make at least one addition in the midfield department this January.

However, the 22-year-old is also attracting Premier League interest from sides such as Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

With his contract set to expire in the summer, he would be free to leave on a free transfer at the end of June if he does not extend with the Gelsenkirchen club.

Inter have also been linked with a move for Meyer, with the Nerazzurri keen to add more creativity to their midfield which has often looked static and devoid of ideas in recent weeks.
