Rumours that Schalke hot prospect Max Meyer is on the verge of a move to Liverpool have been dashed by the German side's manager, according to media outlet ​Bild.


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is reported to be extremely interested in bringing the 20-year-old attacking midfielder to Anfield in a deal that could be worth €34m.

However, Schalke manager Christian Heidel has quashed the rumours stating that there is no intention to sell the German under-21s star whose contract with the Royal Blues expires in 2018.


Heidel told Sky Sports (via ​Bild): "Max is a really good player, but a move to Liverpool is nonsense.


"I know Klopp a bit, and I have spoken with him recently and I think he would have been determined to speak to me then, if interest had been there. Aside from that, Max is not on our sales list. "

Meyer has featured in the Bundesliga for the past three seasons having made his senior debut for Schalke in 2013.


The former MSV Duisburg acadamy star, who has picked up one senior cap for Germany since being first being called up in 2014, made 32 appearences over the course of the last campaign and netted on five occasions.

Heidel will become even more defiant in keeping hold of the youngster should fellow Schalke starlet Leroy Sane make a move away from the club.


​Reports suggest that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is extremely interested in capturing the 20-year-old German winger who is considered to be one of the world's brightest young talents.
