Premier League side Liverpool are showing a strong interest in Schalke midfielder Max Meyer after he told his side that he did not wish to sign a new contract. I hope to see that together we can give everything to win something for the club, for the supporters and for us.

In between, he shone in the less illustrious Italian Serie A with a series of dazzling displays, first during a brief loan spell with Fiorentina and then during a highly-successful two-year stint with AS Roma where he became one of the team's undisputed stars.
