Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to sign Paris Saint-Germain defender Layvin Kurzawa, and according to Calciomercato, the French club are prepared to let him leave in the summer.

The 26-year-old left-back can also play as a left midfielder and would give Spurs, one of a number of clubs reportedly interested, options on that side.

Pochettino currently has Danny Rose and Ben Davies as his first choices but is understood to be looking to reinforce the Tottenham defence once the summer transfer window opens.

Kurzawa would follow Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier in moving from PSG to North London with the clubs enjoying a good relationship with one another.

The France international has made just nine appearances in all competitions for the Parisians this season so it is unlikely the club would block a move and Calciomercato claim they are open to letting him leave.

Kurzawa has made just four league starts, although those have come in PSG’s last four games, and he played no part in their European campaign which recently ended at the hands of Manchester United.

The ex-Monaco man has – until recently – found his opportunities limited behind Stanley N’Soki and Juan Bernat and may well welcome a move to Tottenham where he would play alongside compatriots Hugo Lloris and Moussa Sissoko.

Spurs made unwanted history by not buying any players in last summer’s transfer window and having been linked with several players already, it seems Pochettino does not want a repeat.

Full-back has been a problem area for him this season so a move for Kurzawa, an experienced international who is capable of playing in a couple of positions, would boost their squad, provided Tottenham can beat off competition for his signature.
