Rumours are rife that the top clubs in Europe want our Koscielny: PSG, Monaco and Bayern Munchen. Apparently, Kosc is on a paltry £50,000 a week and these prowling clubs are willing to double, even triple it.
Arsenal must fight off interest from Paris St-Germain, Monaco and Bayern Munich to convince Laurent Koscielny to sign a new contract.
We need Koscielny and BFG aka Per at the heart of our defence. They are so synchronised at the back, it’s unbelievable; Wenger NEEDS to pay Koscielny what he wants as he still has age on his side and is one of the top defenders in Europe.
Laurent Koscielny: Since the start of 2013, Arsenal have a 65% PL win rate with Koscielny starting, compared to just 41.7% without him #AFC

Let’s not go back to selling our top acts/players and although I really like Bacary Sagna, I’d pick Koscielny over him. There, I said it.
But he is a fantastic finisher because he has unbelievable power and a very short back-lift. The one you want to have a chance is him.
I have my problems with Podolski – He doesn’t track back with the rest of the team and he needs to improve on his positioning – but that’s not enough for him not to warrant a new contract. I mean, if we could keep Chamakh and Bendtner, Podolski is gold! Gunners everywhere want him to start more games.
I want titles and that is why I came to Arsenal. Every football player wants to win titles. We’ve gone many years without winning one. And if not, what I’ll look for in my next destination is to have the chance to win.
When a player starts saying stuff like that, well, you ready yourself to expect anything. While many Gunners were upset by his statements early last week, he no doubt left us appreciating his talent in the game against West Ham where we beat them 3-1. Carzola is someone I’d like us to keep, very much. Although he’s had some poor games this season, there’s no doubt that he’s part of the talent we need in our midfield.
