West Ham are eyeing up a move to sign Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa in the January transfer window according to a report from Foot Mercato.

Napoli and Lazio are also thought to be chasing the 29-year-old.

Left-back is clearly an area where Hammers boss David Moyes needs to strengthen at the London Stadium.

Aaron Cresswell’s absence has hammered home just how much West Ham need to sign a new left-back.

Arthur Masuaku just isn’t good enough to deputise for Cresswell whilst Ben Johnson is better and more comfortable at right-back.

And it seems as though Moyes has his heart set on someone who could provide more solid competition and cover for Cresswell.

West Ham eyeing January Kurzawa swoop

The 13-capped France international is a January transfer target for the Hammers according to Foot Mercato.

He could be available for a bargain £6m fee as well according to a report from The Sun.

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.

Foot Mercato claims that PSG are desperate to get rid of Kurzawa in January. So this one should be a fairly easy transfer to get done. Aside from the competition from Napoli and Lazio of course.

The PSG ace would be a very smart addition for the Hammers, especially if we can get him for a reasonable fee and on decent wages. He currently earns around £79k-a-week according to Salary Sport.

One red flag will be his age, however. It’s always hard to acclimatise to the Premier League when coming from Ligue 1, especially at 29.

Moyes will have done his research and due diligence though.

And if the Scot believes that Kurzawa will make us a stronger as a group, then we trust his decision implicitly.
