Contract talks begin for Arsenal Player, 5 years and a wage rise

Posted on Jul 9 2012 - 10:47pm by TFN Reporter

Arsenal have reportedly opened talks with one of their important Gunners over a new five-year deal. What will Arsenal be offering this player? Well:

Laurent Koscielny, the heart of Arsenal’s defence, a 26-year-old centre-back  who moved to the Emirates around two years ago, was one of the Gunners’ players of the season last term, after a successful defensive season with the Arsenal despite criticism about Arsenal’s defensive tactics, he was one of the few who displayed fantastic defending at all times.

It is reported that the player will be offered a pay-rise and a contract will will last until 2017 as it is believed that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is ready to make moves to make sure his top players do not depart from him (once again).

Koscielny has got four caps for the French national team, with the latest coming at Euro 2012 when he started against Spain in the quarter-finals (which sadly ended in a 2-0 loss).

Manchester City, Barcelona and AC Milan have all reportedly got a small interest in Koscielny, but Arsenal hope a new contract will put paid to any transfer talk.

Koscielny is highly expected to sign on in the next few weeks, and will be definitely boosted by the arrival of close friend Olivier Giroud from Montpellier, so it does not look like there will be another contact rebel to add to Arsenal’s problems.
