Over the past couple of months, RMC Sport in France have been trying to push the story that Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea are all interested in Paris Saint-Germain’s Layvin Kurzawa.
The France international appears to have made his mind up about leaving the Ligue 1 champions in the summer, seeing his game time limited by Unai Emery towards the end of the season, and his preferred destination would be the Premier League.
Contradicting RMC Sport are Paris United, who have explained a couple of times on their Twitter feed without actively reporting it that Manchester United and Tottenham aren’t all that keen on the Frenchman.
That changed over the weekend when, in the same article as revealing Ryan Sessegnon was on his way to Tottenham, they stated Chelsea were the only one out of the trio wanting Kurzawa.
The Blues are reportedly looking for a new left-back this summer, most likely anticipating a Marcos Alonso departure (Emerson Palmieri only just arrived in January), and a list of three names has been drawn up: Kurzawa, Alex Sandro and Faouzi Ghoulam.
Furthermore, to help increase his chances of a transfer, the Paris Saint-Germain defender recently changed agents.
It appears Chelsea now have a clear path to Kurzawa if they so wish.
