Arsenal, Manchester United and Everton are interested in Paris Saint-Germain right-back Thomas Meunier, according to reports in France.
Paris United report that whilst Meunier wants to remain with PSG, it appears he’s played his final home game for the club.
The Belgian international still has a year left on his contract, but several English clubs are reportedly interested in him, including Arsenal, Manchester United and Everton, who have already made a bid. Meunier is set to meet the PSG board at the end of the season.
Paris United have a good reputation when it comes to rumours involving Paris Saint-Germain, so it’s worth taking notice of this story. Of course, they’re only reporting that Arsenal are interested at this stage, and not that they’ve made any official contact.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see Arsenal moving for a right-back this summer. It remains to be seen how quickly and effectively Hector Bellerin returns from his injury, Stephan Lichtsteiner is leaving, Carl Jenkinson is being forced out and Unai Emery only seems to trust Ainsley Maitland-Niles at wing-back.
Meunier has had a few injury problems of his own this season, but when fit he’s an excellent right-back who has also played at wing-back regularly this campaign. He has five goals and seven assists in 30 appearances in 2018/19, and he obviously knows Emery well. Let’s see what happens once the Ligue 1 season is over.
