Tottenham Hotspur are admirers of Paris Saint Germain defender Layvin Kurzawa but will face competition for his signature.

That’s according to talkSPORT, who cite Calcio Mercato in reporting that Manchester United and Atletico Madrid are also monitoring the player’s situation.

Kurzawa has fallen out of favour with the Ligue 1 Champions this season, starting just four of the club’s league matches to date and not featuring at all in the Champions League before they were knocked out by United.

The 26-year-old cost the Parisians €23m when he joined from fellow French outfit Monaco in 2015, signing a five-year deal.

That contract runs out next summer and although discussions are thought to have taken place over new terms, it is understood that an agreement is yet to have been reached.

Spurs are thought to be leading the race for the Frenchman, with Daniel levy having signed Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura from the club in recent years.

The North London club are of course well-stocked in the left-back department, with Danny Rose and Ben Davies, internationals for England and Wales respectively, on the books.

Kurzawa’s contract situation could mean Spurs get him on the cheap in the summer, instead of PSG losing him on a free 12 months later.
