Arsenal is closing in on a deal to sign Paris Saint-Germain defender Layvin Kurzawa. According to people familiar with the discussion, talks between the two clubs are at an advanced stage, and Arsenal really needs a defender. Luckily for Arteta and Arsenal, Kurzawa will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season, as a result, it will cost them less to get him than it would if he will still be under contract.
The Gunners have initiated talks with the Ligue 1 (PSG) champions over a move for the France international left-back, he has just six months left of his current contract.
Arsenal has seen both Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac suffer injuries, the club is hoping to sign the France international for a nominal fee and they are hoping to get the deal done by the summer. The 27-year-old Left-back moved to PSG from Monaco in 2015 in a deal worth close to €22 million. It’s unclear what the price tag will be to get him to join the North London club but money shouldn’t be an issue since his contract is running out.
Kurzawa is expected to make an instant impact if he decides to join Arsenal, his an experienced defender and he has what it will take to help Arsenal’s backline. The injury-ridden Arsenal defense can use more manpower and if the transfer talk becomes a fruitful one, Arsenal is positioned to benefit a lot from it.
According to reports, the head of football at Arsenal Raul Sanllehi is leading the talks with PSG with the hope to land Layvin Kurzawa, who has only emerged as a target for Arsenal in recent weeks.
