Koscielny’s departure is set to end a summer of speculation, as the Frenchman refused to travel on the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.
The potential departures don’t end there with Ornstein also reporting Arsenal’s want to move on centre-back Shkodran Mustafi, with the North London side said to be in talks with a number of clubs.
Unai Emery’s side have made four signings this summer, with Nicolas Pepe, William Saliba, Dani Ceballos and Gabriel Martinelli all joining the club.
Arsenal remain active in the transfer market, and the North London faithful couldn’t be more excited.
Here is a selection of tweets from Arsenal fans following the report by Ornstein:
