Arsenal in frame for Lorient defender Koscielny

Arsenal could move for Lorient centre-back Laurent Koscielny within the week, claims the Daily Mirror.

French sources claim that the Gunners are gearing up to make their move on the 24-year-old.

The Ligue 1 outfit are thought to be reluctant to part with their star defender but a bid in the region of £8million would be too much to resist.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has previously stated that he wants the majority of his transfer dealing concluded before the World Cup, and with doubt still hanging over the futures of Sol Campbell and William Gallas, an official move for Koscielny may just be days away.
