Paris Saint-Germain wants to use the January window to offload players who have no future with the capital club. One player that the Ligue 1 side wants to say goodbye to is left-back Layvin Kurzawa.
The France international is fourth on the depth chart with Nuno Mendes, Juan Bernat, and Abdou Diallo ahead of him. As a result, PSG will do their best to move on from Kurzawa, and it seems as though they might have a taker.
According to the Turkish media outlet Fotomaç (via Paris Fans), Galatasaray has re-engaged its interest in the 28-year-old. This past summer, the Istanbul-based club tried to land the player, but Kurzawa refused, so it appears as though they’re trying their luck again this January.
Galatasaray is in ninth place in the Süper Lig with 23 points and is in the UEFA Europa League knockout. They’re hoping to improve their rotation that will allow them to get back into their league race for at least the European spots and compete in their competition abroad.
However, it’s a lot easier said than done to convince Kurzawa to leave the French capital. He’s compensated nicely for a player that’s fourth on the depth chart and enjoys the Paris lifestyle.
It’s hard to see him passing that up for Galatasaray, but perhaps not playing for nearly half the season might get him to reconsider.
