Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Laurent Koscielny is on the verge of signing a new contract with the club.
Reports in France this week suggested the centre-half had agreed a new five year deal with the club, just reward after another excellent season.
In his press conference today, the Arsenal manager said, “Koscielny is close to signing a new contract”.
It’s not his first extension since joining in 2010, he also penned a new deal in 2012 which runs until 2017, but with reported interest from Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid because of his eye-catching performances, the club have moved to ensure his future remains at the Emirates.
The deal is expected to be announced within the next few weeks.
