Bayern and Barca ready to fight for Koscielny

European heavyweights Bayern Munich and Barcelona are both lining up bids for Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny, the Mirror understands.

The 27 year old has recently entertained the idea of moving on, claiming that he isn’t prepared for another season chasing the competition.

Arsenal have made a habit of letting big name players move on in the close season over the past few years, and Koscielny is not willing to hang around unless he sees the team improve rather than weaken.

The champions of both Spain and Germany are ready to swoop for the France international, who enjoyed his best season with the Gunners last time around, forming a solid central defensive partnership with Per Mertesacker.

Arsene Wenger brought the France international to England three years ago for £8.5million, and would expect almost double that should a bid come in, with four years remaining on his current deal at the Emirates.

Someone like puyol? Puyol may have passion, but he is old, and overrated at his best.
