West Ham have been linked with a move for Paris Saint-Germain ace Layvin Kurzawa on a consistent basis over the past year or so. But with the Frenchman reportedly keen on moving to Arsenal instead, David Moyes will have his work cut-out if he wants to sign the left-back.

The 27-year-old France international is a target for West Ham, according to a report from the Sun.

Spanish publication Sport claims that Arsenal and Barcelona want Kurzawa as well. And it is suggested that the PSG ace would prefer a move to the Emirates, however.

And that will represent an obvious problem for West Ham if true.

David Moyes will be desperate to bolster his left-back options this summer.

Aaron Cresswell seems to be well past his best. And the 30-year-old has certainly lost a yard of pace since returning from two serious injuries.

Meanwhile, Arthur Masuaku is clearly not consistent enough to be playing for a Premier League side with aspirations of challenging for the top seven next season.


And with that in mind, Kurzawa would have been the perfect summer addition for West Ham. Not only because of his quality, but also due to the fact that he will be available on a free transfer at the end of this season.

The 27-year-old is a top talent, and in 14 Ligue 1 outings for PSG this season, he has averaged 1.6 tackles, 1.3 interceptions and 1.1 clearances (Who Scored).

Kurzawa is a real threat going forward. He has 21 assists and 13 goals in 123 appearances for PSG (Transfermarkt).

Moyes and Mikel Arteta will both surely love to have a player like the Frenchman amongst their ranks next season.

But as things stand, it seems as though Arsenal have the edge over West Ham. And if the Hammers miss out on Kurzawa, it will be a big blow for them.
