Laurent Koscielny tempted to leave Arsenal this summer as they stall on new contract amid interest in Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti

Laurent Koscielny could leave Arsenal this summer as the contract discussions are blocked.

The Gunners captain is eyeing a new challenge in the summer and according to L’Equipe, the idea of playing for a new team has become ‘more and more tempting’ for Koscielny.

Koscielny, 33, could feature in the Europa League final against Chelsea and it would be his 405th game for the club.

Arsenal’s interest in Samuel Umtiti may be having an impact on their decision not to tie the centre back to a new contract.

Unai Emery’s side may have to qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League final against Chelsea to be able to bring Umtiti in.
