Arsenal are readying a bumper contract extension for star French central defender Laurent Koscielny, reports the Mirror.
The 28-year-old has been excellent this term, and the Gunners are prepared to award his form with a new deal.
He passes the ball excellently from the back, and prides himself on his superb defensive positioning.
Already this season, Arsenal have extended the contracts of Per Mertesacker, Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky and Santi Cazorla, and want to similarly secure the future of Koscielny.
Backup keeper Lukasz Fabianski and stalwart right-back Bacary Sagna have been offered new terms as well, but are expected to leave on free transfers this summer, as they have yet to accept the contact extensions.
