Arsenal have been given the green light to sign highly-rated French full-back Layvin Kurzawa after he handed in a transfer request at current club Monaco, according to the Metro.
The 22-year-old has been on Arsene Wenger’s radar for several months now, and he will look to make a move over the summer in order to shake up his squad to mount a serious title challenge next term.
Kurzawa has played a key role in Monaco’s campaign this year, making 34 appearances as they struggle to overtake Marseille in second place. However, they remain on course to secure a spot in next season’s Champions League.
But the player has been in fine form so far, and has even played himself into the French national team, winning two caps so far.
And now that he has informed Monaco of his desire to move on, Arsenal will lie in wait and make a decision over whether they want to make a bid in the coming weeks.
