Koscielny: Arsenal Captain Snubs Club’s US Pre-Season Tour
Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel on the club’s pre-season tour of the US.
Koscielny’s future at Arsenal is reportedly in doubt after entering the final year of his contract with no sign of a new deal.
Arsenal said in a statement: “Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our pre-season tour.
“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.”
Bordeaux have reportedly offered Koscielny a three-year deal.
Koscielny, who joined Arsenal from French side Lorient in 2010, has made over 350 appearances for the club. He last signed a contract extension in 2017, with that deal expiring at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.
