Everton have approached Paris Saint-Germain over a move for right-back Thomas Meunier, according to reports.
The Belgian defender, 27, would reportedly be open to a Goodison Park move in search of more first-time football.
Everton could snatch the right-back for a bargain price as Meunier will be running down into the final year of his contract with the Parisians in June.
According to Le10 Sport, the Toffees are interested in bringing the Belgian in as Seamus Coleman – once one of the Prem’s best full-backs – has struggled since he broke his leg in 2017.
Meunier said in April last year he would be open to take a “step down” from the level presented by PSG and move to Everton, as he was struggling with playing time at Parc des Princes.
He told RTBF: “Go down a notch? What does that mean?
What I want is to play football. I still have two years left of contract in Paris and my goal is to stay in Paris. We like it a lot.
“It’s playing in a club in the style of Everton, Valencia or Dortmund.
“Michy Batshuayi made a very good choice by going there. The pleasure is to play football and that’s what I miss for now.”
But Meunier has been much more involved since Unai Emery’s departure last summer, and has played in 23 games for the French champs this season.
However, he has started in just 13 of them as the current PSG chief Thomas Tuchel shuffles between the Belgian and Brazil veteran Dani Alves on the right wing.
Meunier has also scored four goals in the current campaign, including one in the Champions League against Everton’s Merseyside bitter rivals Liverpool.
