In the span of 11 days, Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa went from advanced negotiations with Arsenal FC over a January transfer to agreeing on a four-year contract with Juventus FC according to L’Equipe.
The latest report reveals that the 27-year-old Frenchman, whose PSG contract expires this June, will join former teammates Blaise Matuidi and Adrien Rabiot in Turin if Juventus agrees to send Mattia De Sciglio to PSG in exchange.
De Sciglio has two more years on his contract and has been highly rated by PSG’s sporting director Leonardo since his days at AC Milan where he held the same executive position.
The Italy international had been injured recently but according to L’Equipe‘s reporting, De Sciglio is back training with his current team and his health shouldn’t hold up any potential deal.
Opinions among PSG and Juventus fans have been split regarding the swap deal. Both players haven’t quite lived up to expectations, so perhaps a change of scenery will do them both some good.
I’m personally looking forward to De Sciglio’s arrival. He’ll have a mentor already in the team in Marco Verratti and manager Thomas Tuchel will certainly appreciate his versatility (can play left-back and right-back) as he is currently coping with several defensive injuries.
