Koscielny has been linked with Bayern Munich and Barcelona in recent times and with good reason. Speculation went in overdrive when Koscielny said he wanted to see more ambition at Arsenal despite saying he was happy at the club.
His agent Courbois, recently said: “There is interest. I know that Laurent is part of a shortlist of three or four players for both clubs.”
What this seems to indicate is that Koscielny will be staying for a season -- especially considering a move could be risky during the World Cup year -- but if things don't go to his wishes next year, he could be out in 2014.
