Lorient defender Laurent Koscielny looks like he might be joining us this summer. I’m not sure if he is the replacement for Gallas,Silvestre,or Sol, and for one thing, he isn’t the most experienced player at 24 playing for a (no offense) regular club like Lorient. He is 6 ft 1 in, an inch taller than Thomas Vermaelen, and played 35 times for Lorient last season. One thing people have to remember is nobody really knew much about Vermaelen when he joined and look at how he turned out. If he is a right footed Vermaelen, I’m sure we would have one of the best partnerships in the Premier League. I’m not sure how much Lorient are expecting us to pay for him, but I do know that we are reported to have a €10 million bid for him last week which was turned down. He has also stated that he wants to play in the champions League himself stating that he would prefer a move to England or Germany. Once again I’m not sure about him, but we will never know unless we sign him.
Thanks for reading, bye.
