Everton are interested in signing Thomas Meunier in the summer with the Belgian international likely to leave Paris Saint-Germain, according to Le10 Sports.

Meunier had established himself as one of Europe’s best attack-minded full-backs during his time at the Parc des Princes, having joined the perennial Ligue 1 champions from Club Brugge after Euro 2016.

 

But the 27-year-old has struggled for game time this season with Dani Alves and Thilo Kehrer for competition in Paris.

Le10 Sports claims that Meunier is not in the plans of manager Thomas Tuchel and is expected to leave in the summer with his contract due to expire in 2020.

It is understood that Everton could offer the World Cup semi-finalist a fresh start in the Premier League. The Toffees, who were linked with Meunier in January via Telefoot, will keep tabs on him over the next few months according to Le10 Sports.

A technically gifted and two footed player with an excellent crossing ability, Meunier has scored four goals and set up five more this season for PSG and could be a long-term successor for Seamus Coleman at Goodison Park.
