Arsenal fans react to rumours Laurent Koscielny could be on his way to Aston Villa
According to reports from Italy, Aston Villa are considering a swoop for Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny to shore up their defence as Dean Smith looks to turn things around at Villa Park.
The Frenchman is currently recovering from an Achilles tendon injury and is expected to be back in the fray in early December, but the 33-year-old could be on his way in January as he has been reportedly told he is surplus to requirements at the Emirates under Unai Emery.
The Midlands club have been able to attract big names in recent times, most notably bringing in John Terry last summer as he called time on his Chelsea career to captain in claret and blue.
Everton’s £26m man Yannick Bolasie was also signed on loan in August as Steve Bruce hoped to replicate the success of the previous season to no avail, but if the former Lorient man quits the Gunners in favour of a move to the Championship side it would be one of, if not the biggest signing in the league’s history.
Here’s how Arsenal fans reacted to the shocking rumours surrounding their club captain.
