Liverpool are reportedly weighing up a move for Paris Saint-Germain defender Layvin Kurzawa when the transfer window eventually reopens.
Reports over the winter transfer window suggested that Arsenal and Mikel Arteta were hoping to seal the defender's signature for a deal reported at around £6 million.
Arsenal was initially looking to sign Kurzawa in the summer when his contract at PSG runs out, but Thomas Tuchel expressed his desire to keep the left-back as part of his plans and the France international stayed put.
Currently, the versatile James Milner is providing Liverpool with a back-up at left-back and luckily first-choice Andy Robertson has managed to stay fit for the majority of the season.
However, Jurgen Klopp could look to strengthen his options in that position in the next transfer window with Spanish publication Sport claiming that Liverpool have entered the race to sign Kurzawa on a free transfer.
The report adds that Arsenal maintains their interest, while the Premier League sides are likely to have strong competition from Barcelona, Napoli and Inter Milan for the left-back's signature.
Kurzawa's experience at Champions League and international level make him an attractive proposition, especially as a squad player.
