Koscielny a target for Bayern

Arsenal centre back Laurent Koscielny has emerged as a transfer target for Bayern Munich, according to the Daily Mail.

The newly crowned European Champions will be managed by Pep Guardiola next season, and the Spaniard is keen to add the 27 year old to his squad, with the signing of Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Mario Gotze already confirmed.

Koscielny formed a formidable defensive partnership with Per Metersacker in the second half of last season which resulted in a ten match unbeaten run to clinch Champions League football for next season.

Meanwhile, one defender who may remain at the Emirates is Bacaray Sagna, who without ruling a move away has opened talks over a new contract.

The full-back has been linked with a return to France, with both Paris Saint Germain and Monaco having shown an interest.

Elsewhere, Arsene Wenger has been linked with a move for Swansea City forward Michu.

The Gunners are looking at a number of attacking targets, with Gonzalo Higuain, Stevan Jovetic and even Wayne Rooney under consideration.

However, the Daily Mail understand that the Spaniard, who scored 22 goals for Michael Laudrup’s side after joining from Rayo Vallecano last season, is also being discussed by the Gunners scouting team.
