PSG in new bid for Kurzawa
French daily newspaper L’Equipe is reporting that Paris Saint-Germain are not giving up on Monaco full-back Layvin Kurzawa.

PSG have recently submitted an €18 million proposal for the player’s services, but have seen the bid rejected by Monaco.
Namely, the Principality club want around €30 million for Kurzawa, meaning the ball is back in PSG’s court.
The 23-year-old has developed into one of country’s leading left-sided defenders and has been linked with quite a few top sides in the past.
It is believed he is tempted by the prospect of joining Paris Saint-Germain, and is hoping the Ligue 1 rivals will eventually come to an agreement.
