French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have identified a Premier League right-back as a replacement for Thomas Meunier who could leave the club this summer.

Leicester City defender Ricardo Pereira was one of the standout players for the Foxes during the just concluded season in the wake of his transfer from Portuguese giants FC Porto last summer.

According to media portal YS, PSG are plotting a move for him as a replacement for Belgian national team player Meunier.

The PSG right-back is expected to leave the club this summer with reports claiming that the French champions have slapped an asking price of €25m on the 27-year-old despite the fact that he has one year left on his contract at the Parc des Princes.

PSG want to sell the player this summer rather than let him leave the club on a free transfer upon the expiration of his contract next summer.

Premier League sides like Arsenal and Manchester United have shown interest in Thomas Meunier but neither has made a concrete bid for him.

The Gunners are the favourites to sign him with the Belgian open to the idea of working with Unai Emery again.

Thomas Meunier and Unai Emery worked together while the latter was the PSG manager from 2016 to 2018.
