Tottenham are in the hunt to sign Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa, according to Calcio Mercato.

The Italian news outlet claims that despite PSG offering the 26-year-old a new deal, he still might leave the Ligue 1 leaders in the summer with Spurs, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid interested in signing him.

Kurzawa has only made eight first team appearances in all competitions this season due to injury and he was an unused substitute in each of his side’s games against Man United in the Champions League.

Good move for Tottenham?

Kurzawa is a decent left-back who would have played a lot more for PSG this season if he did not have to undergo surgery on his back last year.

The France international supplies a steady stream of goals and assists when he plays regularly for the Parisians due to his attack-minded play, so he could be a good fit in Spurs’ system.

Mauricio Pochettino does already have two good left-backs in Danny Rose and Ben Davies, but if one of those was to move on in the summer, then Kurzawa would definitely be a worthy replacement.

Likely to happen?

It surely depends on whether Rose or Davies leaves and if PSG are willing to let Kurzawa go for a fee that is deemed fair by Daniel Levy.

According to French news outlet Sportune, Kurzawa enters the final year of his £50,000-a-week deal at the end of this season, so if he does not sign a new deal then PSG are more than likely going to cash in on him.

Could he head to Tottenham? Man United and Atletico are also interested in the ex-Monaco left-back and until there are serious noises about Rose or Davies leaving, you cannot say that this is anywhere near certain to happen.
