Arsenal have moved to tie-up the future of Laurent Koscielny, and look set to further bolster the squad with a £16million coup for Spain winger Santi Cazorla.
The Gunners came from behind to beat a Malaysia XI 2-1 in the opening match of their Asia tour at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil on Tuesday, with late goals from youngsters Thomas Eisfeld and Benik Afobe.
France international Koscielny was one of several first-team players not part of the 24-man squad following his involvement at Euro 2012. However, the 26-year-old, signed from Lorient in 2010, remains an integral part of Arsene Wenger's long-term plans.
