Arsenal still want Koscielny

Arsene Wenger has confirmed he is still in the hunt for Lorient centre back Laurent Koscielny.

With William Gallas out of contract and heading out of Arsenal, Wenger has made an £8 million bid for 24-year-old Koscielny, which Lorient rejected.

Wenger, though, remains hopeful a deal can be completed. He said in the Sun: "There has been an approach for Koscielny and there still is one."

Koscielny told France Football last week: "French and foreign clubs have shown interest. Among them, there are the Gunners. It is difficult to not listen to someone like Arsene Wenger when he is attracted. Any player is tempted to work with him.

"Lorient's officials want to get an eight digit fee and negotiations have started. With some bonuses, we are not that far away."

Arsenal have also been linked with a £4 million move for Rangers defender Madjid Bougherra, whom Wenger praised after his performance for Algeria against England.

"Wenger found a few kinds words for me," Bougherra said. "It's given me a big boost."
