Meunier: Spurs fullback Aurier the equal of Alves

PSG fullback Thomas Meunier has no doubts about the quality of Tottenham defender Serge Aurier.

Spurs signed right-back Aurier for a fee of about £23m from French giants PSG on transfer deadline day, a month after the Ligue 1 outfit had recruited Daniel Alves on a free transfer.

"For me, Serge and Dani are equal," Belgium international Meunier told L'Equipe. "Dani has experience and he is a leader on the pitch."

Despite Aurier departing PSG this summer, Meunier still has competition for a right-back starting berth in the form of Alves.
