West Ham have joined the hunt for Belgium right-back Thomas Meunier, according to reports.
Dutch publication Voetbal Nieuws claim that the defender is deciding between a range of top European clubs including Paris Saint-Germain, Napoli, Torino and the Hammers.
Slaven Bilic will be keen to secure the players services having already missed out on free agent Gregory Van Der Wiel, who is set to join Fenerbache this summer.
Meunier played a prominent part in Belgium’s European Championship campaign that culminated in a 3-1 defeat to Wales in Friday nights quarter-final.
The right-back scored six goals and provided six assists this season in 42 games in all competitions for Club Brugge.
The former Virton player still has four years left on his contract with the Belgian giants but could be tempted by a move to the Premier League.
It is thought that the east London outfit’s biggest rival in the hunt for the 24-year-old’s signature will be the big spending P.S.G, who have already made several additions to their squad this summer.
Bilic will hope Meuiner will opt for a move to London ahead of Paris as his side prepares to host Europa League football at the Olympic Stadium next season.
In other West Ham news, the Hammers are close to clinching the signing of an emerging English striker.
