According to Le10 Sport, Everton have approached Paris Saint-Germain over a move for Belgium international Thomas Meunier.
Meunier will see his current deal with PSG expire in summer 2020, so his future with the French champions is certainly in doubt at the moment.
Right-back has proved to be one of the big problem positions at Everton so far this season, with neither Seamus Coleman or Jonjoe Kenny particularly convincing in the No.2 slot.
According to Le10Sport, Everton have actually already made contact with PSG to discuss a summer swoop for the 6ft 3in ace.
The Merseyside club’s supporters have been on social media reacting to the news and it would be fair to say that they are struggling to agree on the defender.
Indeed, whilst some believe that Meunier would be a good signing, others feel that Mason Holgate – currently on loan at West Bromwich Albion – would be the better option in the long run.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
I get Holgate is doing well in the Championship but he wasnt exactly great when we gave him a chance. Meunier is very experienced, peak age, not a bad shout for the right price in my opinion.

In the inimitable words of Oliver Norville Hardy, “Now we’re getting some place…”

Another washed up player from a big team to add to the collection

Lucas Digne appears to be doing alright. Can’t ridicule every single player

Excellent player, I do feel we would be holding back Holgate and Kenny who to me are good enough options for the time being. Money should be spent elsewhere first. Also think other clubs would be interested if available so would need to pay over the odds.
