It’s annoying enough when clubs want our players but to want them just to stick them in the squad is beyond infuriating.

After it was reported earlier in the week that Real Madrid were after Laurent Koscielny and that Zinedine Zidane could be using his time in France to have a word, it seems they are only one of a number who want the man who is tipped to be the next Arsenal captain.

Also on the wishlist of Jose Mourinho as he looks to buy another title, this time with United, a report in Bild on Friday said

The club’s technical director Michael Reschke is said to be a big Koscielny admirer, to the point that he’s recommended the player to Bayern.

They’ve just signed Mats Hummels and already have Jerome Boateng at the club so Kos would be mad to go there and swap being a guaranteed starter with Arsenal for a place on the bench in Munich.

From what I can see, despite signing a new ‘long-term’ contract in 2014, Kos will be available for free next summer, meaning he can talk with clubs outside the Premier League in January.
