Lazio are interested in PSG outcast Layvin Kurzawa, but the Biancocelesti need the Ligue 1 giants to pay part of the player’s salary.
The Frenchman is among Lazio’s targets to strengthen their defence.
Kurzawa has only played nine minutes under Mauricio Pochettino this term and is clearly looking for regular playing time, which Maurizio Sarri could offer him at the Stadio Olimpico.
The Italian tactician was close to securing his signature while in charge of Juventus in 2020, but a swap deal between the Frenchman and Mattia De Sciglio eventually collapsed.
However, transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà insists Kurzawa is not a direct request from Sarri, who would prefer Emerson Palmieri or Reinildo Mandava.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Lazio remain interested in Kurzawa’s loan but would need PSG to pay part of the defender’s salary.
The 29-year-old is on a €5m-a-year deal at the Parc des Princes, meaning he gets €1m more than Lazio’s highest earner Ciro Immobile.
PSG need to sell some of their players in January and Kurzawa is among those expected to leave.
