- Chelsea appear to have set their sights on landing Layvin Kurzawa from PSG on loan
- Tuchel is desperate to strengthen their backline after Ben Chilwell suffered a knee injury
- The Blues initially wanted to recall Palmieri from Lyon but the French side rebuffed the attempts
- Tuchel and Kurzawa worked together during the German's spell at PSG as manager
Chelsea have reportedly entered talks to sign Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa on loan.
The Blues are currently facing challenges on the left flank after Ben Chilwell suffered a season-ending knee injury.
The west Londoners were hoping to have Emerson Palmieri recalled from Lyon where he is on loan but the French giants rebuffed the attempts.
Daily Mail now reports the European champions have set their sights on landing Kurzawa for the rest of the season to provide cover for Chilwell.
Tuchel had initially considered a move for Lucas Digne but did not want to add a permanent signing within his ranks.
Marcos Alonso was drafted at left wing-back against Man City on Saturday, January 15, in a clash that ended in a 1-0 defeat.
Sports Brief understands Tuchel is keen to reunite with Kurzawa to bolster his squad as the second half of the season gets underway.
Kurzawa, who joined PSG from Monaco in 2015 was a favourite under Tuchel during the German's spell at Parc des Princes.
During the period, the 29-year-old played regularly under Tuchel but has since fallen out of favour with Mauricio Pochettino.
According to RMC Sport, talks have since begun over Kurzawa's possible loan switch to Stamford Bridge for the rest of the season.
