Layvin Kurzawa Rumors Signal Spurs’ Intentions In The Transfer Market

Whether the rumors are true or not, Spurs have now been linked with PSG left-back Layvin Kurzawa.

Often appearing in Didier Deschamps’s French side, the Parc Des Princes mainstay has had a mixed season at left-back with 28-year old Yuri Berchiche splitting minutes with the 25-year old.

With Danny Rose’s departure looking imminent, Spurs will need to replace him with someone of good quality, and Kurzawa looks like the ideal candidate.

Alongside the signings of Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura, Daniel Levy is looking to take advantage of PSG’s precarious financial situation.

With the big-money signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, PSG need to balance the books in order to avoid any financial fair play sanctions. One way to recover finances is to sell players but here is the issue, they won’t be able to sell them at the price they want.

This is where Daniel Levy steps in.

Known as one of the toughest negotiators in world football, the Tottenham chairman knows the ball is in his court. He knows he can get them Kurzawa at the price he wants. At face value, 23-million pounds for Serge Aurier and 25 million pounds for Lucas Moura look like bargains in today’s transfer market (admittingly, Aurier hasn’t had a first season to remember at Spurs).

With soaring prices, Levy knows he can get quality for a good price. This shrewd approach will help Spurs as they move into their new stadium next season.

Apart from price, the sigining of Kurzawa would make sense because he would already be familiar with Aurier and Moura which will help him acclimate to the team as well as the country of England.

This is a rumor that cannot be written off completely. Logically, the potential move makes sense and ticks all of the boxes for Spurs. Don’t be surprised if this rumor is fully realized this summer.
