Arsenal Target Kurzawa, Djene

Arsenal’s defence has come under scrutiny this season and they are struggling at left-back while injured duo Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac recover.

That means the Sun is linking them with a new arrival in that position: PSG star Layvin Kurzawa.

Former Arsenal manager Unai Emery was keen on Kurzawa but was unable to pull off a deal for the France international. However, now he’s a free agent in the summer, Kurzawa’s price is down around the €8m mark and the Gunners are confident of making a move.

Mikel Arteta is also keen to bolster central defence and the Sun claims that Getafe centre-back Dakonam Djene is on the radar.

Djene, 28, is also wanted by Premier League quartet Tottenham, Everton, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace, but Ligue 1 side Monaco are closest to signing the €25m-rated Togo international and have already had a €15m bid rejected.
