Thomas Muenier says he will stay at Paris Saint-Germain despite reports linking the Belgian defender with a move to Arsenal and Manchester United.

The Belgium international has been attracting interest from the Premier League following a promising campaign at the Ligue 1 champions.

Although Meunier isn’t first-choice at PSG, the 27-year-old acquitted himself well when called upon by his manager Thomas Tuchel in the 2018-19 campaign.

Manchester United have been linked with a move to sign the versatile defender in recent weeks as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to improve his defensive options ahead of the new season.

Arsenal were also touted as a potential destination for Meunier, who worked under Unai Emery at PSG before the manager took over the reins of the north London club.

However, Meunier has directly addressed the transfer speculation surrounding his future at the Ligue 1 champions beyond the summer transfer window.

“I want to stay,” Meunier told VTM Nieuws. “We have been talking about a contract extension for a while, but there’s no offer on the table anymore.

“I’m ready to stay in Paris. Everybody knows.”

Arsenal finished in fifth place ahead of Manchester United last term following a decent first campaign for Spanish head coach Emery.

Solskjaer took over the reins from Jose Mourinho at Manchester United in December before he was appointed as their permanent manager in March.

Arsenal missed out on the chance to secure a spot in the Champions League following a 4-1 loss to Chelsea FC in the Europa League final in Baku last week.
