Arsenal are bracing themselves for surprise competition from Crystal Palace in the race to sign free agent Max Meyer.
The Daily Mail claims the German international is on the radar of Roy Hodgson, who is known to be working on a small budget this summer.
Meyer is currently a free agent after his deal at Schalke expired this summer.
Arsenal were said to be keen on bringing him to London, but it was reported that his wage demands were deemed too high.
Meyer left Schalke on bad terms, despite enjoying a successful season at the club.
Concerns over his future at the club saw him fall out with manager Domenico Tedesco.
However, Meyer thrived under Todesco, who utilised the player in a deeper midfield role compared to the more attacking position he has been known to play in.
