Laurent Koscielny to sign fresh Arsenal contract
Arsenal's standing captain Laurent Koscielny is set to earn a fresh four-year deal at the Emirates on a substantial wage rise. The 31-year-old has been with the Gunners since the summer of 2010.
Koscielny, who is currently in the final year of his Gunners contract, is expected to put pen to paper on a three-year extension with the club.
According to L'Equipe, the centre-half has been negotiations over an extension since January, and he has now finalized an agreement which will see him earn wages of around £130,000-a-week.
Koscielny would surpass the record for the longest-serving French player with the Gunners, should he remain for the length of his new contract.
Former great Patrick Vieira currently holds the record having spent nine seasons with Arsenal between 1996 and 2005.
