According to Goal.com, Juventus are in talks with PSG over the swap deal of full-backs Mattia de Sceglio and Layvin Kurzawa, with the latter one heading to Turin.

Kurzawa turns out to be a target of Premier League club Arsenal, but the Bianconeri now appears to have won the race.

The deal can be otherwise called as the transfer of the sparsely used left-backs as both the players were second-choice for their respective clubs.

De Sceglio has made only six appearances in Serie A this season while Kurzawa has made nine starts in Ligue 1. The French defender is currently in the final six months of his contract with the Parisians.

The report also adds that the negotiations are in full flow between the two parties, with the deal could be announced in the coming days.

Juve are keen on strengthening their left-back position as they have also been linked with Porto defender Alex Telles, who is subject to transfer of Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.

Maurizio Sarri’s men are leading the Serie A table, four points ahead of Inter Milan.
