ARSENAL have suffered a transfer blow after Paris Saint-Germain confirmed Layvin Kurzawa had committed his future to the club.
The French international left-back was due to become a free agent at midnight tomorrow with a host of clubs chasing his services.
The Gunners were one of those leading the chase for the 27-year-old and were thwarted in an attempt to get him for £6m in January.
Now their hopes of luring him across the Channel to London have ended after today’s announcement.
PSG ended speculation over Kurzawa’s future by confirming he had penned a new long-term deal.
Now he is under contract at Parc des Princes until 2024, despite looking set to depart for months now.
The ex-Monaco ace has been at PSG since 2015 and has made 123 appearances for the French champions.
He has bagged three Ligue 1 titles, three French Cups and three League Cups in that period.
