Koscielny trains with Lorient ahead of Arsenal move (Video)
Laurent Koscielny took part in a open-doors training session earlier this afternoon as the 24-year-old closes in on his £9 million move to Arsenal.
The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for the Lorient centre-back, as William Gallas’ contract talks are believed to have reached an impasse while Sol Campbell’s future is still undecided until after the World Cup.
Two bids have already been made for Koscielny, who is likely to come in as a direct replacement for William Gallas, with the clubs now moving close to Lorient’s valuation of around £9 million.
Our friends over at Young Guns revealed earlier today that Ivan Gazidis has already struck a provisional deal with the French side, and we understand that it could be made official within the next week.
