French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly launched a £16 million bid for AS Monaco left-back Layvin Kurzawa. 22-year-old Kurzawa was linked heavily with a move to Emirates this summer but they never made any formal approach for the French international.
Kurzawa has become a regular starter for Monaco in the last few seasons and he made a total of 39 appearances for them last season in all competitions and assisted 5 times.
This season, he already made 6 appearances for Monaco in all competitions and found the net 3 times. But Monaco was denied a Champions League place by Valencia as they Spanish outfit beat them 4-3 on aggregate in the playoff and without Champions League, it will be difficult for Monaco to keep hold of their star.
Kurzawa has been capped 15 times for various youth set ups of France and has been capped twice for the senior team as well.
It seemed like Paris Saint-Germain had withdrawn from the chase after seeing their first offer, believed to be in the region of €18 million (£13 million) rejected.
However, French news outlet Le10Sport claim the Ligue 1 giants have returned with a second offer said to be worth €22 million (£16 million).
Paris Saint-Germain are in the market for a new left back to replace Lucas Digne who has joined Roma earlier this summer.
Arsenal will have to react faster now if they wish to sign the highly rated left back.
