The 22-year-old is a long-term target of Mauricio Pochettino, who has been linked to the attacker over the past three transfer windows.
In June, the Sun claimed that Tottenham were preparing a £17.5million move for Meyer, but it didn’t materialise.
Meyer is out of contract this summer though and would be available to move for free if he doesn’t sign a new contract with Schalke.
Football Whispers, which gathers all transfer rumours across the globe and calculates the likelihood of them happening, rates it as the fifth most likely transfer to happen at 3.4.
A good move for Tottenham?
The 22-year-old would fit in perfectly with Mauricio Pochettino’s vision for Tottenham. Meyer, who has broken through into the Germany team, has enjoyed four solid seasons in the Bundesliga already, although he only managed one goal and three assists in 27 league appearances last season. He’s highly rated in Germany though and the Tottenham move could be just what he needs to take the next step in his career.

Likely to happen?
With Meyer’s contract ending in the summer, this is the last window the Bundesliga club will be able to get a fee for him. And that makes the move highly likely. If the reports of Pochettino targeting Meyer are true, this gives him the perfect opportunity to steal the 22-year-old away.
