Layvin Kurzawa has reached a total agreement to join Arsenal this summer, according to the latest reports in France.
The Paris Saint-Germain defender is out of contract at the end of the term and would be available on a free transfer.
The French giants are open to selling the 27-year-old during the January transfer market and Arsenal have held talks over a possible deal this month.
But according to France Football, Layvin has now agreed a five-year contract with the north London outfit and will join them in the summer.
The report also states that Mikel Arteta is a huge admirer of Layvin and has ‘repeatedly’ told Arsenal’s board to step up their efforts to sign him.
Inter were also keen on a deal for Kurzawa but the defender refused their approach and has opted to sign for Arsenal.
Kurzawa was signed by the Parisians from Monaco for around £20 million in 2015 but the French left-back has fallen down the pecking order and has started just six matches in Ligue 1 this season.
As he is out of contract at the end of the season, Paris Saint-Germain have been demanding a fee between €5m and €7m (£4.2m – £6m) from the GUnners to complete a deal this month.
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid are reportedly considering a swoop for Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette after their attempts to land Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani stalled.
Diego Simeone’s side are said to be interested in adding to their strike force this window, with Los Rojiblancos managing just 22 league goals so far this campaign.
