PSG have reportedly offered Layvin Kurzawa a new four-year contract extension

This comes as a blow to Chelsea and Arsenal who have been keeping regular tabs on the highly-rated left-back.

According to FranceFootball, the Parisiens have offered a four-year contract extension to keep Kurzawa in their clutches and avoid him walking away for free this summer.

The former Monaco man has been at PSG since the 15/16 season, making a total of 123 appearances.

He has bagged three Ligue 1 titles, three French Cups and three League Cups in the French capital.

So it comes as no surprise that Barcelona and Everton have also registered an interest in the France international.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen to revamp his left-flank this coming window as Marcos Alonso and Emerson have both struggled at times this season.

And Kurzawa is believed to be a back-up option to top target Ben Chilwell, with the Leicester man’s eye-watering £80million fee has proving a bump in the road.

Director Marina Granovskaia has reportedly been tasked with bringing in two players in the position with Porto’s Alex Telles also linked.

While Mikel Arteta is keen to lure the Frenchman to the Emirates as he is on the hunt for cheap deals in the coming transfer window as the club’s already limited budget was further hit following the coronavirus crisis.

And they forked out £25m for Scottish international Kieran Tierney last summer, but the former Celtic star has suffered an injury-ridden season and is slowly adjusting to first-team action again.

Bringing Kurzawa in would allow Saka to play further forward while also boosting numbers in defence.

The North Londoners may have to sacrifice at least one of four players including Alexandre Lacazette – to splash in the summer.
