After going on strike to force a move away from Arsenal, it seems like Laurent Koscielny may finally get his wish. The defender has been at Arsenal since 2010 but refused to travel with Unai Emery’s team for their PreSeason tour in the United in abid to seal a move away from the Emirates Stadium.

Reports emerging from London indicate that the skipper is on the verge of sealing a move to Ligue 1 side Bordeaux for a 5 Milion pound fee. Koscielny is adamant he does not want to play for Arsenal again. This has triggered a heated debate amongst Arsenal fans.


No Judging..


Not everyone is happy though..



Should the move materialize, Koscielny will join a long list of former Arsenal captains who have been sold by the club. From Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, William Gallas, Cesc Fabregas, Robin Van Persie, and now Laurent Koscielny.

His departure will leave Unai Emery with a defensive headache to deal with. The club has not signed a defender this window and the early signs are that Shkodran Mustafi cannot be relied on this season while Rob Holding will not feature until mid-September as he continues to recover from a knee injury.
