FURIOUS Arsenal will fine Laurent Koscielny and force him to train with the kids after he sensationally refused to travel for the club's pre-season tour of the USA.

Koscielny has been a fans favorite since he arrived in 2010 and his rise from the lower French leagues to the Premier League and UEFA Champions League while also captaining Arsenal is a great story.

- When does the transfer window close?

Bordeaux, Lyon and Rennes have all shown an interest in the veteran centre-half - but the Gunners will demand at least £10million for him.

"We are very disappointed by Laurent's actions, which are against our clear instructions", a statement on the club's official website read.

"Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the U.S. for our pre-season tour", a statement by Arsenal said.

Arsenal says it was working to resolve the matter. He last signed a contract extension in 2017, with that deal expiring at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

Koscielny didn't come back into the team until mid-December last season due the Achilles injury that ruled him out of the World Cup in Russian Federation previous year. They kick off their Premier League campaign at Newcastle on August 11.

The 33-year-old has been a model professional throughout his time with the Gunners so this move has come as a shock to many, but how should Arsenal react?
