West Ham United are allegedly keen to sign Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa in the summer transfer window.

That’s according to a report from Foot Mercato who claim that the 29-year-old is set to change agents in order to help facilitate a move away from PSG.

West Ham manager David Moyes has been linked with a move to sign the 13-capped France international for at least three transfer windows now.

Signing a new left-back will be one of the main priorities for the Hammers boss this summer with Aaron Cresswell crying out for more competition and cover.

Moyes has already been busy this summer. He’s brought Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes and Patrick Kelly to the London Stadium and has made Alphonse Areola’s loan deal a permanent one.

And it seems as though the addition of a new left-back could be next on the agenda for the Hammers…

West Ham eyeing Layvin Kurzawa move

Foot Mercato claims that the 29-year-old has been omitted from PSG’s pre-season tour to Asia and as a result he is trying to switch agents in order to help him get a move away from Les Parc de Princes.

The Hammers allegedly want to sign him but face competition from the likes of Inter Milan, Newcastle, Napoli and Lille.

We think that Kurzawa could be a decent short-term option for West Ham but let’s be real here, signing him would hardly fit the Red Bull model that Moyes is so desperate to emulate would it!

Kurzawa really hasn’t played much for Paris Saint-Germain over the past few years, making just 33 Ligue 1 appearances since the start of the 2019/20 season (Transfermarkt).

We just feel as though David Moyes should be targeting the signing of a much younger, more explosive left-back. And perhaps he is, who really knows.

Having said all of that, the Frenchman could be available for a bargain £6m fee according to a report from The Sun. And he would certainly be a better option than Arthur Masuaku.

Signing the PSG ace for £6 million actually wouldn’t be bad business in fairness.

Whether West Ham do actually make a move to sign Layvin Kurzawa remains to be seen though.
