The swap deal involving Juventus’ Mattia De Sciglio and Paris Saint-Germain’s Layvin Kurzawa has slowed down, states Tuttosport.
Negotiations between the two giants came from nowhere and advanced at a rapid rate, with it being thought that by yesterday the deal could be concluded.
Yesterday PSG coach Thomas Tuchel all but confirmed the deal.
“I have already given the all-clear to this exchange,” said Tuchel, “but nothing has yet been decided between the two clubs. The situation is still open, so that is why Kurzawa won’t be in the squad against Lille.”
De Sciglio has already given his consent for the deal, however Tuttosport states that Kurzawa is having second thoughts.
The 27-year-old is reportedly holding out for an offer from the Premier League before accepting a deal to join the Italian champions.
Arsenal are thought to be interested in signing the right-back.
