Laurent Koscielny is pushing Arsenal to allow him to terminate his deal

L’Équipe report that Bordeaux have made 33-year-old Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny their #1 priority to replace the out-going central defender Jules Koundé, who will join Sevilla shortly for €25m.

Contacts have been ongoing between Koscielny and Bordeaux for several months and the former Lorient defender is understood to have told Les Girondins that he was interested in their proposal.

The outlet claims that Koscielny is pushing for Arsenal to allow him to leave for free, whilst English press reports cited by the newspaper’s website claim that the Gunners want €10m to sell.
