The EPL champions are lining up a deal for Monaco’s Layvin Kurzawa if a deal for Abdul Baba Rahman or John Stones eventually hit the rock.This is according to reports coming from France.
The Monaco defender is lined up by Mourinho as a Plan B considering the dilly dallying in the transfer of of Augsburg’s left back, Rahman and Everton’s insistence on keeping the tough tacking John Stones.
The 22-year-old left back has made an impressive 73 appearances for Monaco since 2010 and has been very open about his desire to move on to a better side.
He reported told his club that he wants to leave. The fall out with his club is the major reason Mourinho is going for him.
The self acclaimed “special One” is looking to strengthen his left wing, weaken by the departure of Felipe Louis who moved back to his former club, Atletico Madrid by the addition of Karzawa.
The battle that will end on the turf for the Premier League clubs has apparently begun on the transfer market. Arsenal Wenger is thought to also be after the player.
