German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund have reportedly been told the amount of money required to sign Arsenal skipper Laurent Koscielny.

According to the publication from the stables of the Daily Star, the Gunners have slapped an asking price of £10.6m (€12m) on the retired French international player.

German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund are the favourites to sign the French centre back but it remains to be seen whether they will want to pay over £10m for the 33-year-old.

Laurent Koscielny is interested in a move to the German club with Champions League football a certainty for the new season, unlike the Gunners.

Arsenal failed to qualify for the Champions League despite having two opportunities to achieve that feat.

The North Londoners lost out to Chelsea in the Europa League final via a 4-1 defeat days after finishing fifth on the Premier League table where only the first four teams will qualify for Europe’s premier club competition.

Laurent Koscielny has one year left on his current deal with Arsenal and recent contract extension talks didn’t end well leading to his imminent sale.

He has done well to battle back from a serious Achilles injury sustained during the 2017/18 season.

The Frenchman returned to action for the Gunners during the first half of the just concluded season.
