The latest Arsenal rumours are saying that the Italian giants AC Milan are going to try and convince Arsene Wenger to sell Laurent Koscielny. We all know that Wenger has stated he needs to cut some of the players out of our ‘heavy’ squad, but our captain is definitely not one of them!
Wenger plucked Koscielny from the obscurity of Lorient 7 years ago, and the Frenchman feels indebted to Le Prof for making his career, and has pledged his loyalty to Wenger many times. The Boss obviously feels the same as he gave Laurent a new 3-year contract at the beginning of this year, and Koscielny was so happy he tweeted…..

A month later, when the uncertainty surrounding Wenger’s future was affecting the team, Koscielny spoke out very highly about his thoughts on the matter. He said: “I would wish that he (Wenger) will prolong it [his deal],”
“It has been seven years that I have been under his command, and I am very respected by him.
“It is him who gave me that chance to come here. He helped me grow as a player and as a man. I owe him a lot for my career.”
There is a lot of mutual respect in there, and there is no way that Kos is going to leave while Wenger still wants him here. Not only that… he is our best defender!
Koscielny is not going anywhere I assure you….
