L’Équipe report that Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur have intensified their negotiations with Belgian international right-back Thomas Meunier in recent days.
The 28-year-old would still prefer to extend his current contract with PSG, which expires in June, but Thomas Tuchel is not a fan of the player and keen to see him move on, which is why currently, Les Parisiens have made no attempt to extend the former Club Brugge man’s existing deal.
There are a host of European clubs who view Meunier as a serious opportunity on the market, as he will be a free agent, but at the moment it is Spurs who are in pole position, proving “very insistent” with the player’s entourage.
If Meunier departs, PSG will be left with just a single right-back in their squad, academy product Colin Dagba, who Sporting Director Leonardo does not believe has the capacity to perform at the highest level.
As a result, the Brazilian dealmaker has begun conversations with Rennes right-back Hamari Traoré and Lazio player Adam Marusic.
