Man City, Marseille in contact with Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny

Published on: 24 May 2017

Manchester City are in contact with Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny.

Le 10 Sport says both Olympique Marseille and City have sounded out the Frenchman's minders in recent weeks about his plans.

Koscielny has publicly pledged his commitment to Arsenal - and there is a confidence he will stay.

However, OM intermediaries believe City can tempt him away, with both clubs registering their interest.

Should Koscielny choose to push to leave, OM and City have requested the opportunity to speak with the France international, though OM reps believe he would favour City in a straight choice.
