DONE DEAL? Arsenal agree Bosman terms with PSG fullback Layvin Kurzawa

Arsenal have struck pre-contract terms with PSG fullback Layvin Kurzawa.

France Football says the Gunners have agreed to signLayvin Kurzawa on a free from Paris Saint-Germain and he will join on a five-year-deal in the summer,.

The North Londoners were hoping to land the left-back this month but have delayed after PSG boss Thomas Tuchel said the French champs need him.

Just five days ago, they were lining up a £6million deal to bring him to the Emirates this month.

But Arsenal will now sign the 12-cap French international as a free agent in the summer when his contract with PSG expires.

They had accelerated initial plans to land Kurzawa, 27, after struggling to cope without the injured Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac.

But after it became clear PSG would not part with their back-up left-back this month, the Gunners have been forced to wait.
