ARSENAL and Spurs target Thomas Meunier has reportedly signed a four-year deal with Borussia Dortmund.
Bild claims the Belgian right-back, 28, will move to Germany once his Paris Saint-Germain contract expires at the end of the month.
Meunier joined PSG from Club Brugge for just £5million in 2016.
He made 128 appearances in the French capital and won a number of trophies including three Ligue 1 titles.
However, Meunier failed to nail down a regular spot in PSG’s starting XI over the years.
And he rejected a short-term contract extension to complete their Champions League campaign which is set to resume in August.
Arsenal and Spurs were both keeping tabs on the 40-cap Belgium international.
But Meunier will now be heading to Dortmund as a replacement for Achraf Hakimi.
He is set to return to Real Madrid after a two-year loan in Germany, and Chelsea are reportedly interested in bringing him to the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Dortmund are also thought to have won the race for highly-rated Birmingham teenager Jude Bellingham.
He looks set to arrive as a replacement for Jadon Sancho, who is Manchester United’s top target this summer.
However, Dortmund have managed to secure the future of top goalie Roman Burki on a new long-term deal following strong interest from Chelsea.
