The 28 year old has formed a rock solid central defensive partnership with German giant Per Mertesacker and it’s no surprise that Antonio Conte has taken an interest, indeed both Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also known to have an interest in the French international.

Arsene Wenger will fight off interest in the former Lorient man but if Arsenal once again complete the season without silverware then the intelligent defender may well consider his options.

Juventus are riding high at the top of the Serie A table and look set to win their third title in a row.

Conte currently operates with a three man defence with Italian internationals Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini forming the basis of a very stable back-line, one which has only conceded 19 goals in 24 fixtures and was by some distance the meanest in Italy in 2012/13.

Arsenal signed Koscielny in July 2010.
