Liverpool are weighing up a move for a France international full-back, while Arsenal are waiting to open talks with a replacement for Dani Ceballos – all in the latest Euro Paper Talk.
LIVERPOOL PLOTTING KURZAWA RAID
Liverpool are weighing up a move for Paris Saint-Germain full-back Layvin Kurzawa this summer, according to reports.
The 28-year-old, who was linked with Arsenal in the January transfer window, is set to leave the Spanish capital when his contract expires at the end of the season.
According to Spanish news outlet Sport, Arsenal – as well as Inter Milan and Napoli – all remain keen but Liverpool have joined the race to sign the France international.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reportedly rates the move as a sensible one, given that Kurzawa has Champions League experience and has played 13 times for his country.
In addition, the deal would be expected to provide stern competition for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson in the full-back positions; Kurzawa has played at right-back and left-back for PSG this term.
Kurzawa has scored one goal and assisted two others in all competitions this season.
