According to France Football, Arsenal are keen to sign Thomas Meunier from PSG.
The Belgian right-back is on Unai Emery’s radar as we look to rebuild the squad this summer, and with Carl Jenkinson and Stephan Lichtsteiner likely to leave this summer, as well as Hector Bellerin being sidelined until September, a player in that position is not an unreasonable acquisition.
The 27 year old who will be 28 in September but until such time remains 27, joined the French outfit from Club Brugge, and is clearly a player that the Arsenal boss knows from his time in Paris.
The story has been picked up/reiterated/ by an Italian journalist on Twitter – and we all know they’re the most reliable sources of transfer information in the entire universe – who claims that we’ve offered him a five year deal.
There’s no mention of transfer fee, but if we’re offering a player who will be 28 in September but until such time remains 27 a contract of that length we assume the transfer fee will be somewhere in the region of 23 trillion euros.
We’re giving this one an 8 on the Poo-o-Meter
But then having reconsidered it all, this seems like exactly the kind of deal we’d do, so have a 3.
