Man United, Chelsea and Arsenal all chase PSG defender Meunier

Chelsea and Arsenal have joined Manchester United in the race for Paris Saint-Germain defender Thomas Meunier.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to strengthen his defensive options and has targeted right-back Meunier, with French champions PSG reportedly putting a price tag of £26m on the Belgian international.

Current full-back options Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian look set to leave the club this summer, with Solskjaer keen to add experience and quality to compete with young prospect Diogo Dalot.

Meunier has been with PSG since signing from Club Brugge in 2016, though is yet to agree new terms on a deal with his contract set to expire at the end of next season.

According to the Mirror United will now face competition for Meunier from Premier League rivals Chelsea and Arsenal, with the duo both reportedly interested in a move for the 27-year-old.

Arsenal’s options at right-back have been limited due to Hector Bellerin’s long-term absence through injury, with youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles and veteran defender Stephan Lichtsteiner having deputised.

Chelsea could also look to strengthen at right-back with Davide Zappacosta out-of-favour, though their plans are complicated by a FIFA-imposed transfer ban.
