Chelsea have opened talks with Paris Saint-Germain to bring Layvin Kurzawa to Stamford Bridge on loan for the rest of the season, in a bid to ease their problems at left-back.

The Blues are short in the position due to Ben Chilwell’s long-term knee injury and their inability to recall Emerson Palmieri from his loan at Lyon.

Thomas Tuchel wants another option at left-back to compete with Marcos Alonso and it looks like Kurzawa is likely to be it, with the Frenchman out of contention at PSG.

The 29-year-old has played 153 games for PSG since joining from Monaco in 2015 but has fallen down the pecking order and has not made a single Ligue 1 appearances this season under Mauricio Pochettino.

Kurzawa did play much more regularly in Paris when Tuchel was in charge of the club, so player and manager know each other well and appear keen to link up again.

RMC Sport report that talks have begun over a loan switch, with PSG happy to let him leave and the short-term deal curing a headache for Tuchel at left-back.

Alonso played at left wing-back on Saturday as Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Manchester City, seemingly inflicting a lethal blow to their Premier League title hopes.

The victory saw City go 13 points clear of the Blues, with a goal difference 13 superior, to boot.

Liverpool’s win over Brentford on Sunday saw them leapfrog Chelsea into second and go within 11 points of Pep Guardiola’s side, with a game in hand, so the Reds will retain a hope of challenging for the title.

With the arrival of Kurzawa or not, though, Chelsea’s hopes seem forlorn this season.
