Bayern Munich Compete For Arsenal Defender Laurent Koscielny

Arsenal are expected to have a struggle to keep their star defender Laurent Koscielny who has flourished this season at the Emirates according to the sun.

The French international has been impressive this season and was one of the main reasons why Arsenal made it into the top 4. He has even pushed out captain Thomas Vermaelen who has been forced to sit match after match because of Koscielny's form.

Koscielny's emergence has seen Bayern Munich become interested in the player and liked what they saw when both sides faced each other during the Champions League where eventual winners Bayern ousted their English competition.

It is believed that Arsenal are already aware of the interest about Koscielny with new Munich coach Pep Guadiola keen to keep the squad in tip-top shape for another crack at the treble of trophies which they claimed this season.
