Layvin Kurzawa could finally join Premier League challengers Tottenham Hotspur this summer from Ligue 1 champions PSG.

Not for the first time, and probably not for the last, Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa.

RMC Sport claim that Spurs had an interest in signing the defender back in August, when they were quoted £22 million. And Calciomercato report that the France international is still on Tottenham’s radar with the summer transfer window on the horizon.

 

Kurzawa has made just eight appearances in all competitions this season, and none in the Champions League, with Juan Bernat established as Thomas Tuchel’s favoured left-back. Calciomeracto believe that the 26-year-old could be allowed to leave this summer.

But, if Kurzawa does finally arrive in North London, he could be key to unleashing the potential of Lucas Moura.

The £25 million winger has had a mixed time in Tottenham colours since he arrived from Parc des Princes in January 2018 (Guardian), often flattering to deceive despite his undoubted talent.

But Lucas has an excellent understanding and relationship with fellow extrovert Kurzawa from his time in France as these pictures attest. Pairing both players on the left-hand side could be key to releasing their potential – and giving Tottenham a fearsome attacking partnership.
