Arsenal About To Announce Signing Of PSG Left-Back Despite Coronavirus

Arsenal Announce Signing Kurzawa

According to Spanish reports, Arsenal are “very close” to announcing the signing of PSG left-back Layvin Kurzawa on free transfer.

The Gunners wanted to sign the Frenchman in January but the deal collapsed and they instead brought in right-back Cedric Soares from Southampton on loan.

But TodoFichajes is now reporting that Arsenal have agreed a five-year deal with the 27-year-old.

They claim the Gunners are moving closer to announcing the deal, which would see Mikel Arteta secure his first signing for next season, despite the coronavirus pandemic bringing the current campaign to a halt.

Kurzawa failed to agree an extension with French champions PSG.

His agent Kia Joorabchian was last month reportedly “handling interesting offers” from clubs.

Even though Arsenal are tracking Kurzawa, Barcelona were also said to be interested in the defender, as they are in need of a back-up for Spaniard Jordi Alba.
