Transfermarkt's German website reports that Feyenoord Rotterdam may be willing to pay a small transfer sum to acquire Borussia Dortmund fullback Thomas Meunier during the current January transfer window.

It seemed highly unlikely that Dortmund would be able to recover a small sum for Meunier during the current January transfer window, but transfermarkt's German home site nevertheless reports that Feyenoord Rotterdam have at least contacted the German club about completing such a transaction. One assumes that the sum involved would not amount to much. Meunier - considered worth €24 million when he joined Dortmund - has an estimated market worth of €2.5 million today.
Previous attempts to move Meunier naturally failed as the player would have to agree to a significant pay cut after the dissolution of his current BVB working papers. The Belgian international would presumably be more amenable to a move now with only six months of his Dortmund salary left to draw. Meunier would also ostensibly prefer to earn playing time ahead of this summer's coming European Championships. The former Brugge star has been capped 62 times for the Belgian national team.
