Great news for Arsenal after Star player says he will retire a Gunner

Arsenal centre-back Laurent Koscielny has confirmed that he has had offers from other clubs but will reject any moves to leave the Emirates so that he can retire a Gunner.

The 30-year-old French international defender has turned into one of the Premier League’s best defenders while currently enjoying one of his best seasons ever with Arsenal.

Recently Koscielny has been rumoured with a possible move to Real Madrid and while he is flattered by all the attention has hinted at remaining at Arsenal for the remainder of his football career.

‘For the moment, I have no reason to go and look elsewhere,’ he said.

‘There were teams interested in me but I always asked myself if it was worth taking the risk.

‘I’ve seen a good few players leave for a bigger club and find themselves on the substitutes’ bench.

‘At the start of my career I was often on the bench. I hated it. I said to myself — never again.’

‘I have everything I need here to blossom.’
