Ligue 1 star open to a move: Arsenal & Liverpool among possible destinations – Opinion

Paris Saint-Germain’s Belgian right-back Thomas Meunier could be on the move in the next couple of transfer windows after admitting his frustration at not being able to get regular first-team chances for the French club.

Meunier’s contract with the French giants expires next summer and he can begin to have discussions with other clubs in January. Which Premier League sides should target the 28-year-old defender?

Let’s take a look at 3 Premier League clubs who can make a move for Thomas Meunier


Arsenal seem to not have too many options at right-back at the moment, with Hector Bellerin being the only quality option in that position, while 22-year-old Ainsley Maitland-Niles has been a backup alternative at right-back, even though his primary position is that of a winger.

The Gunners will benefit from an experienced player like Meunier in their backline, while his passing and crossing would fit in well with Arsenal’s style of play. The Belgian is also strong in the air, which will help ease the Gunners’ defensive woes especially during set-pieces.

Tottenham Hotspur

Like Arsenal, Spurs too don’t have a very good right-back, following the poor form and eventual sale of Kieran Trippier. The north London club have former PSG right-back Serge Aurier, and 22-year-old Kyle Walker-Peters as their two options in that position, but with reports in the summer suggesting that Aurier was to quit the club, there seems to be a degree of uncertainty regarding his future at the club.

Kyle Walker-Peters is 22 years old and while he has been decent, cannot yet be considered a first-choice right-back of a club looking to win the Premier League. And Aurirer’s inconsistency and perpetual doubt regarding his future mean Pochettino should pounce if he gets an opportunity to make a move for Meunier.


Liverpool have one of the best defences in Europe with Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, and Trent Alexander-Arnold in great form over the last year or so. One chink in the Liverpool defence is the defensive abilities of Alexander-Arnold, who is stronger in attack than in defence.

Jurgen Klopp also does not have a backup option with Nathaniel Clyne injured and out for a long time (and even out of favour with his manager). An injury to Alexander-Arnold could make the Reds weaker which is why they should sign Meunier on a free in January.

Also given the fact that the Reds have not strengthened over the summer means there is scope for additions and they will need the squad depth in their likely push for the elusive Premier League title.
