French Duo Want Summer Move For Laurent Koscielny

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is said to be in talks with the club over an exit this summer.

This is according to the publication from The Telegraph which claimed that the Arsenal skipper is in negotiations with senior club officials as he looks to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

New contract talks had earlier broken down between the player and Arsenal despite the fact that he has just one year left on his current deal with the Gunners.

Arsenal will have to sell him this summer or risk losing the 33-year-old centre back for nothing next year.

Reports in the French media claim that two top flight sides in France are keen to sign the experienced defender.

Lyon and Rennes want to sign Laurent Koscielny this summer.

German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund were thought to be the favourites to sign the ex-French international, but the Germans opted to spend €38m on bringing back Mats Hummels to the club from rivals Bayern Munich.

German centre back Hummels had gone to Bayern Munich on a free transfer three years ago.

Arsenal will have to look elsewhere to sell Laurent Koscielny to this summer having already slapped a £10.6m asking price on him.
