Layvin Kurzawa is keen on a move to Arsenal, after Barcelona pulled out of the race, but he has various options in Italy as well.

Spanish outlet Sport report that Barcelona are no longer in the race for Layvin Kurzawa, leaving Arsenal as the clear frontrunners. Kurzawa’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of the season, so he’s free to leave this summer.

We already know about Arsenal’s talks with Kurzawa in January, paving the way for a move in the upcoming window. Napoli, AC Milan and Inter have also made contact with the left-back, according to Sport, though Kurzawa prefers the Gunners.

Ligue 1 is already off, so Kurzawa is free to join a new club whenever he wants.

However, PSG are still hoping to complete their Champions League campaign from August onwards. It’s very possible the defender signs a short-term extension to take part in that run before moving on.

That wouldn’t matter too much to Arsenal. Kurzawa can’t feature for the Gunners this season even if he joins on July 1st, and the 2020/21 season probably won’t begin before September at the earliest.

It’s probably best for the 27-year-old to take his time making a decision until the situation is clearer.
