Tottenham pressing ahead with plans to sign Thomas Meunier on free – Times

A recent report in the English media has once again linked Thomas Meunier with Tottenham.

Meunier’s PSG stint

Meunier has been plying his trade at the Parc des Princes for the last four years now.

The full-back made the switch to France from Belgium outfit Club Brugge for a fee believed to be just over £5m.

Meunier has since gone on to notch over 100 appearances for the Ligue 1 powerhouse, scoring 13 and assisting 21 in the process.

However, despite acquiring a decent amount of minutes during his stint in Paris, Meunier now looks set to depart the club in the very near future.

PSG have already recently announced that soon-to-be out of contract pair Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani will depart the club when their deals expire at the end of June.

And now, with less than two weeks to go until the end of June, Meunier looks set to follow in the footsteps of the aforementioned duo.

Meunier to Tottenham

And as mentioned above, the 28-year-old, who turns 29 in September, is being linked with a move to England.

The COVID-19 pandemic has, of course, affected the majority of football clubs around the globe.

One such side appears to be Tottenham. It was reported back in May that Jose Mourinho will be limited to free transfers, loans and swap deals once the transfer window opens.

As a result, signing Meunier on a free could be a decent bit of business for Spurs, especially given the right-back spot has been somewhat of a problem area for them this season.

Those in a position of power in north London seemingly had a similar idea as the PSG man was linked with Tottenham back in April.

Now, courtesy of The Times, those links have reappeared once again.

As reported on Tuesday, Tottenham are pressing ahead with plans to sign right back Thomas Meunier on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.

It is understood that Mourinho has already spoken to Meunier in an attempt to persuade him to move to London.

Mourinho is also said to be willing to sell both Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters after being told there would be limited transfer funds this summer.
