Time was when Arsene Wenger sold some of his key players to foot the bills of the Emirates Stadium projects or other debt – we have now gone past that era and are seeing some stability in terms of players retention.
According to emerging reports, Laurent Koscielny has agreed to put pen to paper for an Arsenal new deal and he’ll be joined by Mesut Ozil and Hector Bellerin.
Over the past decade, the Gunners have lost several star players due to disagreeements over the signing of new contracts.
The likes of Samir Nasri, Robin van Persie and Bacary Sagna all left the club after running down their contracts and refusing to sign an extension.
According to the reports, Laurent Koscielny will put pen to paper on a deal that will see him remain at the Emirates until 2020, and this report comes on the back of reports that Ozil will soon sign his bogus deal.
Arsene Wenger also confirmed on Thursday that negotiations with the representatives of Hector Bellerin were underway as the club processes a new deal for the Spaniard as well.
