Laurent Koscielny to drag Arsenal to court

0

Laurent Koscielny is taking legal advice, after claiming his wages will be cut in half, as his bitter contract row with Arsenal continues, the UK Mirror reports.

The 33-year-old and his representatives are due to meet club officials this weekend, to try and resolve the issue.

The Gunners captain is trying to force a move away from the Emirates.

Koscielny refused to travel for the club’s US tour and is angry after negotiations over a new deal.

The French defender has only got 12 months left on his £100,000-a-week deal and wanted an extra year, with the club insisting there was no automatic extension clause.

Arsenal were willing to give Koscielny an extra year, with a guaranteed free transfer next summer.

But it would be on a lower basic with performance incentives and bonuses and the player insists it effectively cuts his basic wage in half.

Bordeaux are offering him a three-year contract, but only if he is a free agent. Lyon are also keen.
