Tottenham Hotspur have struggled defensively this season under both Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho.

Right-back has been a problem area for some time now, with Serge Aurier seemingly lacking in consistent defensive discipline.

Spurs failed to bring in a replacement for Kieran Trippier when they sold him last summer, a player who is now thriving in Spain with Atletico Madrid.

One man who has been linked with a move to North London is experienced PSG right-back, Thomas Meunier, who may be available on a free at the end of this season.

Meunier has played 121 games for PSG across four seasons, scoring 13 goals in that time. He also has 40 caps and seven goals for Belgium (Wikipedia).

The player himself has now come out and addressed the transfer rumours, claiming that he would be a good investment for any top side.

However, while he referenced Tottenham by name, he seemingly rubbished the reports linking him to the Lilywhites, insisting that his focus is on PSG.

Meunier said (RTBF as relayed by Daily Mail): “A free, international player, who plays in the FIFA ranked world’s No 1 team (Belgium) and who is 28 years old, I cannot be a bad buy, even if I get gangrene and I have to cut off a leg!

“Clubs don’t have much to lose in the investment, and I think they know it. They have everything to gain.

“Everything that circulates on me on social media versus Dortmund, I don’t understand: I’ve seen so many articles linking me to Tottenham or Inter.

“I don’t understand this craze. My main objective is always to stay in Paris, but for the moment it’s pretty calm.”
