"You should be ashamed" - Ian Wright slams Koscielny’s Bordeaux unveiling


Laurent Koscienly preferred a move to Rennes over Bordeaux, but the Ligue 1 club could not agree a fee with Arsenal, according to a 9:21 report from Sky Sports.

Koscielny attempted to explain his decision to leave with a post on his Instagram account which read: "As you know, I engaged with Bordeaux", he wrote.

But it is time for me to go home, so today my will is to join Bordeaux. I have spent nine wonderful years with this club, nine years during which I learned, evolved, grew up.

Koscielny is still to discuss personal terms with the club but they are unlikely to be a problem given his desire to leave the Emirates.

As is expected with such a controversial move, Koscielny's unveiling video has stoked the fire among Arsenal fans and, as always, many have take to Twitter to vent their frustrations.

"However, I hope you can understand, and in any case I cannot be thankful enough for these years past at Arsenal".

The club are interested in RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano - but it is thought a combination of valuation and the player wanting to stay for Champions League football could make a deal hard.

The last-minute announcement that he would not join the squad prompted the club to open disciplinary proceedings.

A clip, shared by Bordeaux, showed Koscielny taking off his Arsenal shirt to reveal his new club's top underneath.

As a result of Koscielny's departure, Arsenal - who have made four signings so far this summer in Gabriel Martinelli, William Saliba, Dani Ceballos and Nicolas Pepe - still want two more deals done before the window shuts at 5pm on Thursday.

The France worldwide joined Arsenal in 2010 from Lorient for a reported fee of £8.45 million and went on to make 353 appearances, before being made captain during the 2016-17 season.
