Real Madrid are reportedly keen on landing Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny with Juventus also chasing the Frenchman according to Football Direct News.

Arsene Wenger won’t want to lose a defender of Koscielny’s calibre but a move to Real Madrid may tempt the former Lorient man.

The La Liga giants may be open to offering the aforementioned Varane as part of a swap deal which could perhaps tempt Wenger, who may feel that the 20 year old is a hot prospect worth bringing in.

Koscielny moved to the Emirates Stadium back in July 2010 and has made 162 appearances and in the process formed a hugely reliable partnership with giant German international Per Mertesacker.
