Kieran Tierney left Celtic for Arsenal last summer, but the 22-year-old has made only four starts as he’s struggled with injuries in his debut season with the Gunners. Sead Kolašinac is another option in the left-back position.

Two days ago, RMC reported Mikel Arteta’s side have started talking with Layvin Kurzawa. The 27-year-old’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in the summer and therefore, he could be available for a relatively lower fee.

Earlier today, the France international took to Twitter to confirm he’s changed agents and will now be represented by Sports Invest UK.

Friday’s edition of L’Equipe claims the fullback has received number of proposals so far.

Inter Milan are one of the suitors and they offered him a signing on bonus of €5m to join on a free transfer. However, the player doesn’t like Inter because he feels they are not ‘sufficiently competitive’.

The newspaper also mentions Kurzawa’s agent change, and his new representatives want to sell him Arsenal’s project.

It’s claimed ‘discussions took a more concrete form’ since the meeting in London.

There was a meeting earlier this week between the player’s family member and an intermediary, who is pushing Kurzawa towards Arsenal.

PSG are ready to allow Kurzawa to leave, but they will need an amount of around €5-7m. If Arsenal want him in January, that’s the fee they have to pay.
