Koscielny refuses to travel

Published on: 11 July 2019

Arsenal have confirmed that Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel on the club's pre-season tour of the United States.

The 33-year-old club captain, who still has one year left on his contract, is believed to be keen to leave the Gunners this summer and sign for another side.

However, Arsenal have refused to give the former France international a free transfer.

"Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our pre-season tour," a club statement read. "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."

Koscielny has made 353 appearances for Arsenal since joining the club from Lorient in 2010. However, he missed the first half of last season with a serious Achilles injury.

Arsenal are 5/4 to finish in the top four of the Premier League in the 2019/20 campaign and 19/20 to beat Newcastle United in their first fixture of the season on 11th August.
