French international Layvin Kurzara could be on his way to Tottenham

According to Foot Mercato (h/t The Sun), Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa is a transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur.

Kurzawa’s contract at PSG expires in the summer and he will free to talk to other clubs and sign a pre-contract agreement from January (h/t The Sun).

Having joined PSG in 2015 from Monaco, Kurzawa has gone on to enjoy a trophy-laden stint at the Parc des Princes. He has made 100 appearances for PSG with an impressive return of 12 goals for a full-back.

Kurzawa finds himself behind Juan Bernat in the pecking order at PSG and Tottenham would be wise to lure him with the promise of regular football.

At the age of 27, it makes sense for the player to look at alternatives and rebuild his career in a new league.

With Danny Rose out of favour and Ben Davies out injured, Mourinho has been forced to play Jan Vertonghen at left-back. With the Belgian’s contract also up in the summer, Spurs should look for other options.

Although Mourinho seems to rate Ryan Sessegnon (h/t DailyMail), he still feels that the youngster has room for improvement (h/t Metro). With a seasoned veteran in Kurzawa ahead of him in the starting XI, it should help Mourinho to ease Sessegnon into the team.

PSG had shown interest in wantaway Spurs defender Danny Rose in the summer (h/t Sky Sports). With Tottenham so far being unable to sell Rose, it would suit both parties if a Kurzawa-Rose exchange could be arranged in January.

Not only would Spurs be able to get rid of a player who is out of favour but also sign a replacement in a problematic position for the team.
