With Barcelona going all out to bolster their squad strength for the next season, a new potential opportunity has opened for the Catalans in the recent days. Paris-Saint Germain full-back Laywin Kurzawa has been offered to Barcelona by his new agent, Moussa Sissoko.
With Mascherano departing to Chine this January window, Barcelona roped in Colombian Yerry Mina as back up. But now they will want to invest in Laywin Kurzawa to get a left-back as attacking as Dani Alves.
Reports suggest Kurzawa is unhappy under Unai Emery. The French defender has seen Yuri Berchiche take his spot. Kurzawa recently sacked his agent and Moussa Sissoko has become the player’s new agent with one clear job – finding somewhere else to play next season.
However, this is not the first time Kurzawa is being tracked by the Spanish giants. While his time at Monaco, he was monitored by the Barcelona staff. But the deal could never go through as he signed for the Ligue 1 champions.
Now seems the opportunity that Kurzawa could seal a move to Spain. Barcelona are looking to replace Lucas Digne and Laywin seems the perfect candidate for that position.
Reports suggest that the 25-year old has already made his decision to leave Paris-Saint Germain at the end of the season and that Moussa Sissko has also initiated contact with Barcelona over his possible transfer. PSG are understood to be willing to sell for €25m.
This is coming after reports stated that Barcelona are looking to strengthen the left back position. There have already made contact with Bayern Munich’s David Alaba.
Growing up to become one of the best left backs in football, David Alaba has come to Ernesto Valverde’s list of long term players at the Camp Nou.
According to Spanish outlet AS, Barcelona’s technical secretary Robert Fernandez has told president Josep Bartomeu to find the funds required to bring the 25-year-old to La Liga ahead of a summer move for Alaba.
Alaba would be a more attractive option for Barcelona, as his versatility makes him a wonderful option for the Catalan side.
Let’s wait and watch!
