Arsenal in talks to sign PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa?

Arsenal are allegedly working on a deal to sign Paris St. Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa.

The talks between the two sides have progressed past the initial stages.

It is understood, the Gunners are short on options in defence with a number of injuries, adding numbers in that area is always a priority.

Kurzawa, 27, who will be available on a free transfer this summer but it is believed the north London outfit are keen to do a deal to bring him to the Emirates before the January transfer window shuts down.

The France international has started just six league games for the Parisians so far this season.

Kurzawa joined PSG from arch rivals Monaco in 2015 and has since won three Ligue 1 titles, three Coupe de France and three times the Coupe de la trophies.
