West Ham allegedly could sign Layvin Kurzawa from Paris Saint-Germain on transfer deadline day.
That’s according to a report from Foot Mercato who claim that the 29-year-old is very much open to the idea of leaving PSG before tonight’s 11pm deadline.
Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to sign a top-class striker and a quality centre-back before the January transfer window slams shut.

It could be argued that West Ham need another left-back as well though.
Aaron Cresswell will be 33 before the end of the year whilst Arthur Masuaku isn’t good enough to be playing Premier League football, certainly not in the left-back position.
Meanwhile, Ben Johnson is more naturally suited to the right-back role and Emmanuel Longelo isn’t yet ready to be playing regularly for the senior team.
It seems as though Moyes could have a plan up his sleeve to improve upon the left-back department at the London Stadium.
West Ham have chance to sign Kurzawa on deadline day
Foot Mercato reckon that the 29-year-old PSG left-back is on the Hammers’ radar.
And if we want to bring Kurzawa to East London today, it will definitely be possible.
He could be available for a bargain £6m fee as well according to a report from The Sun.
The 13-capped France international 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.
And it remains to be seen whether the Hammers actually get any new signings through the door at the London Stadium before tonight’s 11pm deadline.
