Eustace's agent called the Potters boss on Wednesday to set up the meeting and Pulis is keen for the midfielder to agree a new contract.
Stoke have not made offers to any of their out-of-contract players over the summer, with Eustace saying several Championship clubs have asked about his services.
"There are lots of players out there who haven't signed contracts," Pulis told the Stoke Sentinel.
"People are finding out what's out there and will play the field.
"But John knows what we are all about and if we can get to a deal that would be great.
"John has done exceptionally well. He has had a lot of time off, but his attitude is exceptional and he is a fantastic lad to have around the club.
"He is a smashing character and I would love to sign him again."
Eustace fought his way back from a career-threatening knee injury and only started eight games for City last season but was named in the squad in all but one of their last 25 fixtures.
