Everton make approach for PSG defender Thomas Meunier

According to Le 10 Sport, Everton have made an approach for Paris Saint-Germain defender Thomas Meunier ahead of this summer’s transfer window.

What’s the word, then?

There is no getting away from the fact that right-back has been a problem for Everton in recent weeks, with Seamus Coleman and Jonjoe Kenny sharing the position.

Recently, the Everton supporters debated whether they wanted Coleman or Kenny to start the clash with Cardiff City on February 26.

However, according to Le 10 Sport, the Toffees are looking further ahead and have approached PSG over a move for Meunier at the end of the campaign.

The 27-year-old will see his contract with the French giants expire in June 2020, suggesting that he could be available for a reasonable price.

And Everton must move for the 6ft 3in ace, who could turn out to be one of the best signings of this summer’s transfer window.

Why would Meunier be an upgrade?

Meunier, who is a 36-time Belgium international, has made 23 appearances in all competitions for PSG this season, scoring four times and contributing six assists.

Before arriving in the French capital, Meunier, who can also play wing-back, won the Belgian Pro League with Club Brugge.

Quick, powerful and impressive on the ball, the defender would be a serious upgrade on both Coleman and Kenny.

Indeed, it would be fair to say that Coleman has not been the same player since recovering from a horrific leg break, whilst Kenny has not really shown that he is capable of being a consistent, long-term option at right-back.

Everton must do all that they can to attempt to bring Meunier to the Premier League for the start of the 2019-2020 campaign.
