Thomas Meunier scores for PSG to remind Everton why he is touted as Seamus Coleman’s successor

Everton target Thomas Meunier scored for PSG last night.

Everton have been searching for a new right-back as they try to find a long-term replacement for veteran Seamus Coleman.

The Irishman has served Everton well over the years but Marco Silva wants a younger option to compete with him.

Everton have managed to faze Leighton Baines out this season, replacing him with the younger, more exciting left-back Lucas Digne.

But they need another option on the right-hand side of defence with Silva seemingly unconvinced by Mason Holgate or Jonjoe Kenny for the long-term future.

Recently, Everton have been linked with Paris Saint-Germain right-back Thomas Meunier.

 

According to le 10 Sport, Everton have made an approach to sign the Belgium international as Coleman’s successor.

And last night, Meunier scored for PSG in a cup match against Dijon to remind Everton of his talent.

It was the 27-year-old’s fifth goal of the season and he also has three assists to his name, making him a useful attack-minded full-back option.

Meunier already has 12 goals for PSG, as well as six international goals in 30 appearances, giving him a unique threat for a right-back.

With Digne providing three goals and three assists this season from the left, Meunier could match or better that tally on the right.

Meunier is an exciting option and could be the ideal upgrade on Coleman for Everton next season.
