Arsenal could be homing in on their first signing of the summer, with Layvin Kurzawa set to move to the Emirates Stadium on a free transfer.

The Paris Saint-Germain left-back has been a long-term target for the Gunners and he is set to join once his contract with the French champions ends at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old has penned a five-year-deal for Arsenal according to todofichajes, who also claim the announcement for the transfer will come at the end of the season.

A host of European clubs had been in the hunt for Kurzawa, with Barcelona among those interested in bolstering their full-back options.

Juventus were also in the running for the France international back in January and looked to have agreed a deal before the move collapsed.

Kurzawa has only been on the fringes of the PSG this term but has still made 23 appearances despite Juan Bernat being largely first choice.

During his five years in Paris he has helped the club towards three league titles.
