Arsenal have reportedly made an inquiry about signing PSG full-back, Layvin Kurzawa. Mikel Arteta is looking for left-back options whilst Kieran Tierney is sidelined. The Daily Mail has claimed that the Gunners have asked about the 27-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer.
Tierney is set to be out injured for two months with a dislocated shoulder. This leaves the North London club light at left-back. Sead Kolasinac has impressed since Arteta came in but the club needs another option to provide back up/competition.
Kurzawa would provide exactly that. He has played 114 games for the French champions and enjoyed an extremely successful period at the Parc des Princes. During his time there, the full-back has won three Ligue 1 titles, three French Cups, three French League Cups, and four French Super Cups. He has a winners mentality that could help at the Emirates.
The France international gets up and down the flanks quickly and provides an attacking threat as well as strong defensive capabilities. With his contract up in the summer, Arsenal will be hoping that they can secure a cut-price deal this month.
TBR view – Kurzawa would be a great signing for Arteta’s Arsenal
The PSG full-back is an extremely experienced full-back who has seen it all during his time at the club. He would bring a seniority and class to the Arsenal backline and would provide healthy competition for Sead Kolasinac.
His contract situation makes him an attainable target. Arteta should push ahead with the deal.
