Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny has recently agreed to a new five-year deal ending speculation of a potential move to one of the many interested parties, Metro reports.

Sources out of France have stated that the French defender has confirmed and is set to sign a deal that will keep him at the club up until 2019.

Two European heavyweights, Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain are said to have been monitoring the 28-year-old but he looks likely to stay as Arsene Wenger is doing all he can to keep him.

The manager has already offered contract extensions for a number of other squad members such as Per Mertesacker, Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, and Tomas Rosicky.

With many of Koscielny’s team mates signing contract extensions, it’s only a matter of time before he joins them in the Arsenal squad for next season.

Before the campaign comes to a close, Wenger will now have his sights set on the FA Cup final against Hull City where he looks to end his trophy drought.
