Arsenal are seeking a wealth of changes this summer to improve upon what has been an extremely disappointing season, where the north London side have finished outside the top-four for the second campaign in a row.

The Gunners have significantly bolstered their attacking options in the past 12 months, signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as well as renewing the contract of Mesut Ozil, and are now likely to switch attention towards their defence.

According to reports in France, this has led Arsenal to eye a move for Paris Saint-Germain’s France international Layvin Kurzawa, who has become second-fiddle in the French capital following the arrival of Yuri Berchiche from Real Sociedad last summer.

The Ligue 1 champions are open to selling the 25-year-old, capped 11 times by his nation, but are seeking a fee worth around €25m for the defender who has two years remaining on his deal with PSG.

Capped 11 times by France, Kurzawa faces a fight to force his way into his nation’s World Cup squad after being overlooked by Didier Deschamps since November.
