Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly rejoined the race to sign Thomas Meunier after a future move which seemed certain was suddenly cast into doubt, according to Le10 Sport.
Spurs had been looking at the Paris Saint-Germain right-back as a potential summer transfer target.
However, the Belgium international looked set to join Borussia Dortmund as a free agent instead, according to the report.
Now, Le10 Sport has reported Dortmund director Michael Zorc as saying, in wake of the current global health crisis: “There won’t be three transfers in three days this year.
“There is a lot of uncertainty in all the clubs. We must first manage this crisis situation. This summer will be unpleasant.”
The outlet reports that Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho has now decided to get back in the race for Meunier’s services.
However, the 28-year-old has started just 14 games in the French top flight and, with no breakthrough in contract talks, he appears set to seek pastures new.
Meunier won the Belgian Pro League with Brugge in 2016 before lifting the French Ligue 1 title with PSG in 2018 and 2019, and also helped Belgium finish third in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
It appeared as though Meunier to Dortmund was a done deal, but in wake of Zorc’s comments, it would appear that perhaps it’s not quite as clear-cut – and according to the report, Spurs have now re-entered the race.
Meunier is a high-calibre player with plenty of experience at the highest level and, as well as being great in defence, is also a constant threat up the flank and in the final third – making him a great option for Spurs.
