Bayern, Barca in hunt for Koscielny
Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is being targeted by Bayern Munich and Barcelona, according to the player’s agent.
Koscielny has made 119 appearances for the Gunners since moving to the Emirates Stadium from Lorient in 2010, and came second in the club’s fan-voted Player of the Year award last season.
However, the 27-year-old’s representative Stephane Courbis has revealed that his client could now be set for a move elsewhere.
“Laurent is part of a shortlist of two clubs,” he told Eurosport.
“Bayern or Barca have not contacted the player to discuss a possible transfer but I know that (he) is part of a shortlist of three or four players from both clubs.”
Koscielny had just one year of French top-flight experience when picked up from Lorient by Arsene Wenger three years ago.
The centre-back has since gone on to earn 10 France caps.
