Report: Arsenal dealt major blow in pursuit of Layvin Kurzawa


Report: Arsenal dealt major blow in pursuit of Layvin Kurzawa

According to a report by Sport, Arsenal could be set to lose out to Barcelona in the race to land PSG star, Layvin Kurzawa.

The Gunners have courted Kurzawa for a number of months now and were hoping to land the full-back this summer.

However, this latest report claims Kurzawa has made his mind up already. Indeed, it appears that the Frenchman has opted to move to Barcelona and snub Mikel Arteta’s men.

Kurzawa is out of contract at the end of June. Arsenal, along with a host of other clubs, were looking to move ahead of each other to land the 27-year-old.

But it seems the PSG flyer has his heart set on a move to Spain. It is claimed that Kurzawa is ‘prioritising’ a move to the Nou Camp ahead of anyone else.

This, of course, would be a bitter blow for Arsenal, who were keen to follow up their interest with a firm offer to the player.

Kurzawa has been a squad regular if not a starter for PSG this season. He has made 14 appearances in Ligue 1, making the starting XI in nine of those appearances. (transfermarkt)

Arsenal will have to face facts really with this one and potentially move on. If Kurzawa has his heart set on the Spanish giants, there will be little the Gunners can do.

They won’t be able to offer the sums Barca can and, importantly, probably won’t be able to offer Champions League football either.

This could prove a problem for Mikel Arteta with a number of potential signings. The Spaniard will be hoping that Kurzawa’s decision is not a sign of things to come.
