Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny will discuss his future plans with the north London side before this summer’s World Cup In Brazil.

The Frenchman has this week been linked with a move to a host of European sides - with Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Manchester United all said to be interested in signing the highly-rated centre-back.

According to the Daily Mirror, Koscielny’s representatives held a meeting with Arsene Wenger on Thursday to discuss their client’s long-term future at the Emirates Stadium.

Wenger is thought to be confident of tying his star defender down to a new deal - despite their being interest from a host of Europe’s top teams.

Koscielny, who still has three years left on his current contract, has developed into one of the best defenders in the Premier League since joining Arsenal from Lorient in 2010.

Arsenal believe Koscielny will not join the likes of Robin van Persie, Alex Song and Gael Clichy in leaving the club in order to compete for silverware on a regular basis.

Wenger would lose an integral part of his side if Koscielny was to walk away from the club as the 28-year-old has struck up a fantastic partnership with fellow Arsenal centre-back Per Mertesacker.
