Given that Meyer is less than 24 years of age, the club who sign him in the summer transfer window will have to pay Schalke a compensation fee, which is not going to be huge - and Tottenham should take advantage of this situation and make a move.

The youngster has experience of playing in Europe as well, and signing Meyer on a relatively small compensation package would be a great deal for Tottenham.

While Spurs are not exactly in need of a midfielder at the moment, a player of Meyer’s quality and versatility can only enhance the North London outfit’s quality and help them move closer to challenging for the Premier League title.
