Everton enter race to sign Chelsea target Meunier Everton appear to have joined Chelsea in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain defender Thomas Meunier. The Blues were linked with a move to sign the Belgium international from the Ligue 1 giants last month, but according to fresh claims from France, the Toffees have entered the running to secure his signature. Telefoot, as cited in a report from GFFN, states that Everton are interested in luring the 27-year-old away from Paris as speculation surrounding his future at the club continues. Meunier, who is valued at €30 million, has been used sparingly by PSG boss Thomas Tuchel throughout the season and has made just 20 appearances in the team’s Ligue 1-winning campaign.

Everton have reportedly made the first move to sign Paris Saint-Germain defender Thomas Meunier, who has been linked with a switch to Chelsea this summer.

The Belgian looks to be set for a departure from the French capital, having seen his first-team opportunities limited under Thomas Tuchel this season.

Meunier appears to be a man in demand ahead of next season, and Everton are understood by Euro United to have already submitted a contract offer to the player.

No official bid is reported to have been made by the Toffees, but they are seemingly pushing to tie up a deal for the right-back early on in the summer transfer window.

Chelsea are hardly in need of a new player in this position. Cesar Azpilicueta and Davide Zappacosta are at Maurizio Sarri’s disposal, while Reece James and Victor Moses are on the books at the club, too.

However, as the race for Meunier’s signature appears to heat up, it remains to be seen whether or not the Blues will push to rival Everton in their pursuit.

PSG eyeing move for Chelsea target Philippe Coutinho.
Paris-Saint Germain are reportedly eyeing up a move for Chelsea target Philippe Coutinho this summer, with Barcelona willing to sell if the price is right. The former Liverpool star has performed inconsistently this season and therefore regularly whistled by his own supporters at the Nou Camp – going down in the record books as a flop to many. Thomas Tuchel is seemingly ready to offer Coutinho an exit route though with AS, cited by the Daily Mail, claiming the French champions want to sign him on a loan deal with an option to buy.
