Arsenal have confirmed that defender Laurent Koscielny will join Bordeaux. The Gunners wanted to keep the veteran for the season ahead but he wanted out.
He also refused to participate in the club’s pre-season tour of the United States last month. The Gunners are reportedly now searching for a central defender and have been linked with potential moves for RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano as well as Juventus star Daniele Rungani.
Arsenal have managed to earn £4.6 million for the sale of Koscielny.
