Arsenal Join Man Utd, Tottenham In Race To Sign 25-Year-Old Defender
Arsenal have joined Manchester United and Tottenham in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa this summer
The summer transfer window is fast approaching and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, the latest on Layvin Kurzawa…
Arsenal have joined Manchester United and Tottenham in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa this summer, according to a report by TeamTalk.
Kurzawa came through the youth ranks at Monaco and established himself as one of the best full-backs in French football to earn a big-money move to the Parc des Princes in 2015.
The 25-year-old made an encouraging start to life at PSG and was a regular during the early stages of this season but he’s found first team football harder to come by since the turn of the year with Unai Emery opting for Yuri Berchiche at left-back.
The French international recently admitted his frustration and his situation has alerted clubs here in the Premier League with the Mirror reporting last month that Man Utd and Tottenham had expressed their interest.
Jose Mourinho is expected to sign a new left-back this summer as Luke Shaw’s future is in doubt while Ashley Young turns 33 this year so Kurzawa could be viewed as a long-term replacement.
Mauricio Pochettino is also in the market for another left-back as Danny Rose is being tipped to leave after losing his first team place and Tottenham are also eyeing a swoop for Kurzawa.
However, the English duo will face fresh competition as TeamTalk are citing a report from the Metro that claims Arsenal have now joined the race to sign Kurzawa this summer.
The Gunners are gearing-up for a busy few months as they look to rebuild in the post-Wenger era and a new left-back is seemingly a priority as Sead Kolasinac has failed to impress since joining the club and 32-year-old Nacho Monreal has just one year left on his contract.
The report says Arsenal have identified Kurzawa as a potential long-term successor for Monreal and will now battle it out with the likes of United and Spurs over his signature if he decides to leave PSG this summer.
