    Thomas Meunier has one year remaining of his contract this summer. At 27 (28 in september) he has a few more good years left, and would buy us time to develop Dalot/Laird (both of them works on both sides). In my opinion, he would be a very good option;

    - Would add experience
    - He has much needed aerial presence
    - Surprisingly good on the ball

    Overall an experienced quality player that could be relatively cheap due to his contract.

    He is a big Man Uts-fan too.

    Several people seems to be set on AWB. He would be very expensive at a time when we need several players. Furthermore, do we need another young fullback when we already have Dalot and Laird?! I’m also a bit sceptical. AWB is a great fullback for a team like Crystal Palace, but does he have the qualities we need on the ball?

    Yes, yes and yes.

    He's at a good age so Dalot can learn from him whilst getting a good amount of game time.

    Also if we have Dalot and Laird coming through we don't need another young RB like wan bissaka.

    Don't make threads without any speculation.
