Arsenal to make improved offer for Lorient defender Koscielny

Arsenal are maintaining talks with Lorient for defender Laurent Koscielny.

They had a £4.2 million bid rejected for Koscielny and are expected to make an improved offer as they prepare for the likelihood that William Gallas leaves when his contract expires on June 30, says The Times.

Arsenal plan to smooth negotiations with Lorient by allowing Francis Coquelin to sign for them on-loan ahead of interest Championship clubs.
