Paris Saint-Germain right-back Thomas Meunier was a ‘priority’ for both Chelsea and Tottenham in the summer transfer window, according to Belgian outlet DH.
As per DH, both sides were desperately in the hunt for a new right-back. Spurs lost Kyle Walker to Manchester City, whereas Chelsea had just Victor Moses to occupy the right-wing-back spot.
DH claim that both sides listed Meunier as one of their priority signings, but PSG were unwilling to sell, and the player himself was not prepared to push to leave the Parc des Princes.
Spurs went on to sign Meunier’s PSG teammate Serge Aurier, whereas the Blues landed Torino right-back Davide Zappacosta.
DH believe that Meunier is now set to be rewarded by PSG with a contract extension and a pay-rise. That would effectively end any chances of Chelsea or Tottenham landing him if they did opt to go back into the market for another right-back.
