Tottenham Hotspur have already made moves towards signing Thomas Meunier from Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expires this summer, reports The Daily Express.
The right-back signed for Les Parisiens from Club Brugge in July 2016, and has won three league titles, and four domestic Cups during his time in the French capital.
Meunier, who has 40 caps for Belgium, is one of a number of players set to leave this summer, alongside fellow defenders Layvin Kurzawa and Thiago Silva and forward Edinson Cavani.
Spurs, who sold England international Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid last summer, are looking for more reliable options at the back than Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters.
Neither are offering Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho the consistency he wants to see on the right and he will likely bring in at least one new face in the summer in this area.
And, according to The Express the club has already opened talks with Meunier’s representatives with a view to getting a deal done.
However, they may face competition from both Liverpool and Manchester United with Borussia Dortmund also rumoured to be interested – and according to some reports, favourites to get their man.
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is unlikely to have much money to spend once this season is finished, so a deal for Meunier, a player he has reportedly admired for some time, would be an attractive one for the club.
Furthermore, The Express claims the Spurs manager has already spoken to the 28-year-old, who helped Belgium to third place in the 2018 World Cup.
Despite his contract expiring, he has still featured prominently for PSG this term, making 27 appearances in all competitions, popping up with one goal and two assists to boot.
Impressively, Meunier has picked up just eight bookings all term, only missing one game due to suspension – exactly the sort of discipline Mourinho demands of his players.
