One Belgian out, one Belgian in.
That seems to be a realistic scenario at Spurs this summer, as Jan Vertonghen appears to be happy to run down his contract at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, while the player in could be Thomas Meunier.
Despite the player recently telling RTBF that his first choice would be to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, the Ligue 1 champions don’t appear to be willing to give him a new contract, meaning a free transfer is currently on the cards for the right-back.
According to L’Equipe on Tuesday, Spurs currently ‘have the inside track’ for the defender, and are reportedly ‘very insistent’ in their attempts to sign Meunier.
It helps that the Belgium international ‘appreciates the Premier League’, even if he has openly admitted in the past to have a special affinity towards Manchester United.
That’s all the detail they give us, but with only Serge Aurier in the role at the moment following the loan of Kyle Walker-Peters to Southampton and the sale of Kieran Trippier to Atlético Madrid, bringing in Meunier would do José Mourinho’s squad the world of good for the 2020-21 campaign.
