Paris Saint-Germain are allegedly ready to sell West Ham target Layvin Kurzawa this month.
The Hammers have made an official approach to bring the 29-year-old left-back to the London Stadium according to a report from Foot Mercato.
West Ham manager David Moyes is thought to be on the look-out for a new left-back in the January transfer window.

Aaron Cresswell is 32 now and he desperately needs more quality competition and cover.
Arthur Masuaku is clearly not good enough to deputise for Cresswell and Ben Johnson is more naturally suited to the right-back role.
It seems as though Moyes is very keen to address the Hammers’ left-back weaknesses in January…
Paris Saint-Germain ready to sell Kurzawa
CBS Sports’ Ligue 1 correspondent Jonathan Johnson has suggested that the Frenchman is set to leave PSG this month:
It is claimed that PSG will be prepared to sell the left-back in January, should they receive a reasonable offer for his services.
He could be available for a bargain £6m fee as well according to a report from The Sun.
Kurzawa has had his problems throughout his time in the game, and there have been some question marks regarding his attitude, but he would undoubtedly be a huge upgrade on Arthur Masuaku.
Kurzawa is a real threat going forward. He possesses impressive pace and a very good delivery. He’s a decent tackler as well.
The 29-year-old Frenchman would certainly provide stiff competition for Cresswell at the London Stadium.
£6 million for Kurzawa sounds like very good value for West Ham. The problem for David Moyes is that he should really be prioritising the additions of a striker and a centre-back in the January transfer window.
It is unclear how much the Scot actually has to spend this month.
As long as the West Ham boss gets the additions of a centre-forward and a central defender over the line before the transfer window closes, we think that adding Kurzawa to his ranks as well would be decent business.
