Thomas Tuchel pours cold water on possible January Layvin Kurzawa departure

Speaking in a press conference earlier today ahead of tomorrow’s Coupe de France clash with Ligue 2 high-flyers FC Lorient, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel was asked about the possibility of Layvin Kurzawa joining Arsenal this month.

“We need him, we need him. Honestly, I have not spoken with Layvin or anyone else about a departure. We currently have Juan (Bernat) and Layvin for the left-back position, that is good and it must be like that. Juan is injured, what would we do without Layvin? It’s not possible. He played well (vs Monaco in mid-week), he is here, he is training very well and it is always the same thing, it is up to him to show what he is capable of. Layvin has done good matches for us, he will play tomorrow if he remains healthy. He was good against Monaco, it is good that he is here and he is an important player for us in this position on the left.”
