Arsenal could yet land Layvin Kurzawa this January, with the full-back’s proposed switch to Juventus reportedly hitting the rocks.
According to a report from RMC Sport, the PSG defender was going to be part of a swap deal involving Mattia De Sciglio going to the Parc des Princes.
But with three days to go until the transfer window closes, apparently the clubs are still far apart in terms of an agreement being reached.
PSG boss Thomas Tuchel had left the 27-year-old out of his matchday squad for the weekend match against Lille, which was a suggestion things were moving forwards.
But a move is now in jeopardy, and Arsenal could swoop, suggest The Sun.
It had previously been reported that the French champions wanted £6 million for Kurzawa, whose contract expires in the summer.
According to The Daily Star, the Gunners were only prepared to pay a nominal fee, but perhaps PSG will be willing to come down now.
TBR’s view – Arsenal back in the game?
If reports are to be believed that Kurzawa’s move to Italy is now unlikely, then Arsenal could be back in the game.
With Kieran Tierney out for the foreseeable with injury, Sead Kolasinac is the only natural left-back.
The Bosnian himself has had some injury niggles this term, so Arsenal may need the cover.
Given Kurzawa’s contract is expiring, that surely puts Arsenal in a good position.
That said, time is running out so if there is any lingering interest over the player, it’ll be important not to go in too low.
