|Laurent Koscielny Refuses To Travel On US Pre-season Tour As Arsenal Slam Star by ishoras(m): 12:18pm On Jul 11, 2019|
The Gunners head to America today for four pre-season friendlies, the first of which will see them take on MLS side the Colorado Rapids.
But Unai Emery won’t be able to call on the services on Koscielny, who has refused to travel Stateside.
“Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our pre-season tour,” a club statement read. “We are very disappointed by Laurent’s actions, which are against our clear instructions.
“We hope to resolve this matter and will not be providing any further comment at this time.”
Koscielny is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates and it’s understood he wants to leave the club this summer.
Bordeaux have reportedly offered the centre-back a three-year deal, which he’s said to be mulling over.
Bordeaux’s Ligue 1 rivals Rennes are also said to hold an interest in signing the 33-year-old, who has been plagued by injuries for the last two years.
It’s understood Arsenal are happy for the veteran defender to run down the remainder of his contract.
