ARSENAL are reportedly still confident of landing Paris Saint-Germain full-back Layvin Kurzawa on a free transfer.
The Gunners were strongly linked with a move for the Frenchman in January but a move never materialised, with Mikel Arteta instead bringing in Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares as defensive reinforcements.
However, the 27-year-old’s contract with PSG expires in the summer and is unlikely to stay after falling behind Juan Bernat in the pecking order.
And France Football claim Arsenal are still monitoring his progress and would be willing to sign him on a free at the end of the season.
The French magazine state that the Gunners “aren’t letting go of the situation” and are still “actively following” the defender.
The Gunners have continued to struggle at left-back this season following injuries to Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac.
Youngster Bukayo Saka has impressed for Arteta while deputising but is not a natural defender.
Kurzawa’s arrival could fuel reports Arsenal are ready to cut their losses on Tierney as injuries have restricted the Scottish international to just 11 games in all competitions this season.
