According to TF1, Laurent Koscielny is on the verge of signing a 3-year extension to his current deal at Arsenal.
L’Equipe claimed last week that the French international was set to be rewarded by Arsene Wenger after his considerable improvement since signing two years ago from Lorient.
It is believed that Koscielny’s agent was in London today to oversee the penning of the new deal with an announcement expected in the coming days.
Interestingly (or perhaps that should read ‘worryingly’) the article also hints that both Barcelona and Inter Milan have been keeping an eye on the 26-year-old with his current contract at the Emirates ending in 2014.
News of Koscielny’s decision to commit to Arsenal comes as a welcome boost at a time when most of the headlines are being made by supposed ‘wantaway’ players stalling on talks with the Gunners hierarchy.
Cheers to @SiuFay for the heads up.
