Official | Bordeaux acquire Laurent Koscielny from Arsenal for up to €6m

Bordeaux have this afternoon announced the arrival of 33-year-old central defender Laurent Koscielny, who joins from Arsenal where he was club captain.

After initially attempting to convince the Gunners to let “Lolo” leave for free, Les Girondins will pay a fee for his services, up to €6m including bonuses.

Koscielny, who is said to have taken a sizeable wage drop in order to make the move to Bordeaux happen so he can be geographically closer to his family, has signed an initial 2-year contract with Les Girondins with the option to extend by a further third year.
