Arsenal have been told they will have to pay £4.2m if they want to sign PSG’s Layvin Kurzawa
The French champions want between £4.2m and £8.5m for the defender, according to The Telegraph.
Kurzawa, however, is likely to become available on a free transfer at the end of the season with his contract due to expire and no plans for extension talks.
The Frenchman joined PSG from Monaco in 2015 for a fee in the region of £20m but has fallen down the pecking order in recent seasons with Juan Bernat the preferred starter at left-back.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta wants to bring in at least one defender in January to bolster options
Arteta has bemoaned his lack of full-back options this month following a series of defensive injuries, but Bukayo Saka has impressed as an emergency left-back while Hector Bellerin made a scoring return to the team to earn a draw at Chelsea on Tuesday night.
The Arsenal boss, however, remains keen on bringing in at least one defender this window.
