Belgium full-back Thomas Meunier would like to sign a contract extension at Paris Saint Germain, despite speculation linking him with a move away.

The right-back has been linked with a move to the Premier League, where he could help Arsenal fill a problem position, while Manchester United have also been suggested as a possible destination.

Meunier, 28, is out of contract at the end of the season, and Serie A champions Juventus are also said to have eyes on him – with their interest big enough for them to be willing to dispense with a reported Manchester United target in a swap deal.

However, Le10Sport (via Calciomercato) relay that Meunier is in fact eyeing a contract extension at PSG, despite only making four Ligue 1 starts this season.

It comes after the defender revealed to Het Laatste Nieuws (via SportWitness) that he turned down Everton in the summer – a decision he does not regret.

“No, because I have always made it clear that my ambition was to stay with PSG,” he said.

“I did not want to leave, because playing at PSG is special. You are part of a team that can win a European competition, that is not something many players can say.

“I could have signed with Everton – a good club. I would have played a lot, that’s for sure, and had a lot of fun too.

“But Everton doesn’t play in European competition.”
