In an interview with Belgian outlet RTBF, Thomas Meunier has commented on a possible move to Borussia Dortmund, naming the club as one of the possible destinations where he could go. The 26-year-old right back is currently playing for PSG, appearing in 25 games this season (5 goals, 5 assists). However he is not a starter for the French team which is why he might transfer this summer.

Asked about a possible move, Meunier had this to say: “What I want, and I repeat, is just to play football and if I have to go down a notch to be on the pitch as much as possible I’ll do it. [...] What does going down a notch mean? Playing for a club like Everton, Valencia or Dortmund. Michy Batshuayi has made a good choice going there”.

There are two things to say here, first of all Meunier would be a solid signing for BVB. He has been linked to the club in the past and would be an option who could compete with Piszczek immediately and not be a younger player who would have to develop. Meunier could step right into BVB’s starting eleven and Dortmund should seriously consider him.

On the other hand comparing BVB to Valencia and Everton? C’mon man! That wouldn’t be an ideal start with the fans.

Caglar Söyüncü is one the most interesting young talents in the Bundesliga at the centerback position. The Turkish international joined SC Freiburg in 2014 and has been one of the clubs best players since. According to footballwhispers Borussia Dortmund is one of several clubs interested in the 21-year-old but Freiburg will be asking in excess of 30€ million for him.
