Arsenal complete signing of Laurent Koscielny

Arsenal have completed the signing of defender Laurent Koscielny (pictured in white) from FC Lorient for an undisclosed fee.
The 24-year-old will move to the Emirates on a long-term deal. Koscielny signed for FC Lorient last season, and his performance has impressed Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger.
“Koscielny is a central defender with great ability who performed extremely well last season for Lorient. We identified him as a very strong centre half, who has made big progress very quickly. He has shown he is mentally strong, he's a fighter and a very strong competitor. Koscielny is a great addition to our squad,” said Wenger.
Koscielny has yet to play at international level, and he can represent either France or Poland. He made 40 appearances for FC Lorient last season.
“I'm very excited to be joining Arsenal. They are one of the biggest teams in Europe with many great players. I'm really looking forward to playing in the English Premier League and the Champions League with my new club. Also, in Arsène Wenger, Arsenal has one of the best managers in the world and I can't wait to work with him and do my best for the Arsenal supporters,” said Koscielny.
The new defender will wear the no.6 shirt vacated by Philippe Senderos.
