Unai Emery insists Arsenal are working to bring in “three or four” players before the start of the new season.

Arsenal departed London on Thursday as they are set to begin their preseason tour of the U.S. next week. There was, however, one notable player that was not on that plane to the States: Laurent Koscielny. The 33-year-old captain of the Gunners apparently refused to travel with his teammates.

The club confirmed this in a statement posted on their official website. “Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our preseason tour,” read the statement. “We are very disappointed by Laurent’s actions, which are against our clear instructions. We hope to resolve this matter and will not be providing any further comment at this time.”

Certainly shocking to the club and fans, Koscielny’s decision is both embarrassing and strange. It is not a good look at all for a player that has been with the team for nine seasons to refuse to join his teammates for Continue reading “Laurent Koscielny is hurting his Arsenal legacy”
