Speaking to RMC, Rennes manager Julien Stéphan was asked about his side’s interest in bringing in 33-year-old defender Laurent Koscielny from Arsenal.
“He is a player filled with experience, maturity and of course he is a very good player. But the president discussed the Laurent Koscielny case a few days ago. Today, he belongs to Arsenal, who do not seem willing to let him go. I believe that there is no discussion today between the club and Laurent Koscielny. He is under contract, but he is an excellent player.”
