Former Schalke 04 attacker Max Meyer could be on his way to Crystal Palace, as the Eagles are reportedly locked in talks with the free agent.

Crystal Palace are reportedly holding talks with free agent Max Meyer following his release by Schalke 04 at the end of last season.

The Germany international run down his contract at the Veltins-Arena after a public dispute with sporting director Christian Heidel over bullying claims.

Meyer is understood to have seen a move to Arsenal collapse earlier this summer due to wage demands, but Sky Sports News claims that he could be offered a route to the Premier League by the Eagles.

Palace are said to be confident of completing a deal for the 22-year-old - who can play in midfield or in the forward line - despite previous interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, as well as the Gunners.

Roy Hodgson's men have been quiet in the transfer window so far, bringing in only goalkeeper Vicente Guaita from Getafe on a free.
