Report: Right-back target has ‘almost everything done with Tottenham’ in transfer

1

Reports from Spain are now suggesting that a deal to bring Thomas Meunier to Tottenham Hotspur this summer is almost completed.

Meunier’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain runs out in the summer and 90 Min reported at the start of the month that Tottenham were interested in snapping up the defender when he becomes a free agent.

L’Equipe (via by GFFN) reported last week that PSG had no intention of handing the experienced right-back a new contract as he was not in Thomas Tuchel’s plans for next season.

Spanish publication Sport (as relayed by Sport Witness) have now provided an update on the transfer and suggest that the Belgian international is North London bound.

The report discusses Barcelona’s hunt for a new right-back, with Nelson Semedo said to be on his way out. They suggest that the Catalans would be open to the idea of bringing Meunier in.

However, they reveal that it won’t be possible for Barca to sign the 28-year-old as he has ‘almost everything done with Tottenham’.

Spurs Web Opinion

I suspect most Spurs fans wouldn’t be too thrilled if we sign Meunier and would have preferred Max Aarons or Youcef Atal. However, it is important to recognise the difficult financial situations clubs are in at the moment. We will likely have limited funds in the summer and thus have to prioritise some targets over others. Aarons may well have been the club’s first choice but they may have decided to sign Meunier on a free transfer and invest that money elsewhere.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. So yes the club might be forced to look at free or clever signings however if we are to have any chance they must be the right signings. The club also has a duty to do right to the fans. Buy the wrong players just because they are cheap or free but still expect the fans to turn up and spend their hard earned money well that don’t sit right by me. Levy and all those who don’t need to take a wage should do so if it helps the cause. Levy is not a liked man at the minute.
