Tottenham Hotspur have experienced troubles at right-back all season long, starting with the sale of Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid.

Instead of signing a replacement, Spurs promoted young Kyle Walker-Peters into a first-team spot, starting the first three Premier League games of the season.

However, once the academy graduate picked up an injury, the likes of Moussa Sissoko, Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth all covered at right-back before Serge Aurier returned.

Ever since then, Aurier has been deployed as the first-choice, especially popular under Jose Mourinho. Unfortunately, the Ivory Coast international has struggled to maintain quality defensive performances.

Le10Sport have now claimed that Mourinho and Spurs now have the chance to sign PSG and Belgium right-back, Thomas Meunier, this summer. The Belgian defender looks to be available on a free at the end of the season.

Meunier reportedly looked set to join Borussia Dortmund, but Sporting Director, Michael Zorc, has raised doubts over summer dealings due to the Coronavirus.

This has apparently opened the door to Spurs, who had previously been looking at the right-back as a summer option.

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