Thomas Tuchel pours cold water on possible January Layvin Kurzawa departure

PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa has been linked with a move to the Emirates

However, Kurzawa has fallen out of favour under Thomas Tuchel having started just 6 league games this season so the French worldwide is looking for a fresh start and it appears he'll be on his way to Arsenal in June.

"If he wants to do it, wants to learn and wants to challenge himself, he can be a top, top player for this football club.

I think the team was starting to feel a bit lacking that and I made a decision to play him".

Yes, the results haven't gone his way but surely the new boss has managed to shake up a lot of things ever since he's arrived but some experts believe that the Arsenal players are just too exhausted and lack fitness to put the gameplan to flawless use.

He said via the club's official website: "I think they all went full gas and I think they all tried really hard". Maybe in the first five or 10 minutes, we had to figure out the game a little bit but after that, I think we did.

"I was expecting a little more from his side as well, he needs to take responsibility as well", he added.


"This is the way we can perform only when someone like him comes in and tells us exactly what he wants and stick to the plan - it makes everything a lot easier".

"If he wants to play for this club every three days, when you have to step in there you have to be nearly ideal and at the moment I see this kind of attitude and desire".

"You have a lot of habits and those habits have to be taken away and replaced with new ones and he has done that very quickly, much quicker than I thought and that is why he has been playing".

"Tomorrow we need to win", Arteta replied when asked about the importance of the game.

Man United's defeat at Anfield saw them miss out on a glorious chance to close the gap between them and fourth-placed Chelsea, and now remain fifth on the standings with 34 points.

"I was very impressed with him".
