France international Layvin Kurzawa has ended speculation of a move to Arsenal after signing a new four-year contract with current club Paris Saint-Germain.
The full-back’s deal was set to expire this summer but he will now stay with the Ligue 1 champions until 2024 after agreeing an extension.
Kurzawa had been heavily linked with a free transfer switch to the Gunners this summer after he linked up with super agent Kia Joorabchian.
Joorabchian is a well-known Arsenal fan and has close links to the club’s head of football Raul Sanllehi and technical director Edu, brokering deals to bring David Luiz and Cedric Soares to north London.

Kurzawa has been in and out of the PSG starting XI this season, trading the first choice left-back spot with Juan Bernat, but the 27-year-old seems content to fight for his place.
In a statement, PSG said: “Paris Saint-Germain is delighted to announce that Layvin Kurzawa has signed a four-year contract extension, with the 27-year-old French defender now tied to the capital club until 30 June 2024.”
