Pep Guardiola eyes Arsenal star as first Bayern Munich signing
Arsenal transfer news: Bayern Munich keen to sign Laurent Koscielny
Former-Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola wants to make Arsenal centre-back Laurent Koscielny one of his first signings once he takes over at Bayern Munich, according to the Daily Express.
The German giants clinched the Bundesliga title last weekend, and progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions League following a 4-0 triumph over Juventus.
But with current boss Jupp Heynckes set to step down this summer, and Guardiola poised to take over, the German club are expected to be active in the transfer window.
And the report claims Arsenal are set for a summer of spending themselves, with Arsene Wenger prepared to strengthen his squad significantly.
But he may face another anxious battle to keep hold of his top stars. In recent windows the likes of Robin Van Persie, Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas have all departed the Emirates Stadium, and Wenger will be desperate to prevent another this term.
