According to a French media outlet RMC Sport, Arsenal have contacted out-of-favour Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa’s representatives about a potential summer move, and Gunners fans have been quick to react to the rumour.
RMC Sport says that the defender, rated at £19.8m by Transfermarkt, has been told that he can leave the Ligue 1 champions this at the end of the season, and the north London outfit and their rivals from the capital, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, are all potentially interested.
The France international has made 28 appearances in all competitions this term but has often shared the full-back spot with Yuri Berchiche, and he could provide some competition for the likes of Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal supporters, the majority of which would like the club to re-sign their former 33-year-old goalkeeper this summer according to our poll, took to social media to give their thoughts on the rumour, and while one said “it’ll be like having Bellerin, but as a left-back”, another said they would “rather see Kolasinac develop”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Please no. Seriously. His attitude is not right, he completely lost his spot at PSG with limited competition. It would be a completely poor piece of business.
