Arsenal Kick Off Talks To Land Paris Saint-Germain Defender

Arsenal await security all clear for February training trip to Dubai

Today, Arsenal are linked with Layvin Kurzawa...

Arsenal are reportedly lining up a £6 million January bid for Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa following an injury to Sead Kolasinac.

Arsenal need to invest at left-back due to injury problems in the squad and Mikel Arteta has approved the club's move for him, which is now in an advanced stage.

The Scottish global isn't expected to return to training until March after undergoing surgery on a shoulder injury and with Sead Kolasinac also struggling with ankle and hip injuries, Arsenal have been low on options at left-back in recent weeks.


According to Corriere dello Sport's Campania edition, the Serie A side are interested in Konstantinos Tsimikas to bolster that area of the pitch, but they could see their efforts frustrated by Arsenal.

The 27-year-old would be available on a free transfer when his contract expires this summer but Arsenal intend to sign him immediately and there is some hope that they may be able to recruit him without paying a fee.

Arteta has said no arrivals are close but did hint at his priorities when asked about his slim resources at full-back - which extend to the right-back position given Héctor Bellerín's problems and the season-ending injury sustained by Calum Chambers last month.

Arsenal spent £25million on Scotland worldwide Kieran Tierney in the summer but injuries have restricted the former Celtic star to just 11 appearances this season.
