Koscielny is a target for the European champions.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could have a task on his hands this summer as Bayern Munich prepare a £15m bid for defender Laurent Koscielny, according to the Sun.
The 27-year-old has had a superb season for the Gunners and is now a first choice centre-back for both the north London club and national team France.
Alongside Per Mertesacker, Koscielny has made up a solid defensive partnership at the back and Arsenal’s impressive 10-match unbeaten run at the end of the Premier League season was built on a foundation of only six goals being conceded.
However, a move to Bayern would be hard to resist for any ambitious footballer as not only are the German champions the holders of the Champions League, but they also have the exciting prospect of being managed by highly rated coach Pep Guardiola next season.
Therefore if the Bundesliga winners make a move for Koscielny it would be hard for Wenger to begrudge the Frenchman wanting to go ahead with the transfer.
The defender signed at the Emirates in July 2010 for an £11m fee from Ligue 1 side Lorient, but it’s thought Bayern would have to pay at least £4m more to land their man.
Koscielny has played 34 matches for Arsenal in all competitions this season, which has seen the centre-back net four goals as well as highlighting himself as the best defender at the club.
The form of the France international has seen captain Thomas Vermaelen become ousted from the team and linked with a move away from north London, despite being a favourite of Wenger for several years.
