Arsenal have announced that Laurent Koscielny, Olivier Giroud and Francis Coquelin have all signed new ‘long-term’ deals with the club.
Speaking about the deal to Arsenal.com, Arsene Wenger said,“We are very pleased that three important members of our team have committed to us for the long term. Francis has made tremendous technical strides over the past few years because he’s so focused every day.
“Olivier has big experience in the game now and has become a more and more complete player since joining us. Laurent is of course a key part of our squad and I believe one of the best defenders in the world today. So overall, this is great news for us.”
While, as normal, Arsenal did not confirm the length of the deals, they are believed to take the trio through to 2020.
