Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is wanted by Marseille and Manchester City this summer, according to French outlet RMC Sport.
The report claims that while Marseille are not interested in Olivier Giroud, despite speculation to the contrary, they are keen on bringing Koscielny back to France.
However, the Ligue 1 side could reportedly face competition from Manchester City who are desperate to strengthen defensively this summer and will have money to spend.
Koscielny only extended his contract back in January, signing a deal that will keep him at the club until 2020, and has previously hinted he will stay at Arsenal until he retires.
The defender will reportedly wait to make a decision on his future with Arsene Wenger yet to confirm if he will remain in charge of the club next season.
However, this is not the first time, there has been speculation about Koscielny and Marseille with a source claiming recently he could be tempted to the French side.

Clearly big changes are needed at Arsenal this summer, but Koscielny would surely be one player the club would be keen to keep and there is no suggestion he wants to leave.
Of course much may depend on how Arsenal finish the season and who is in charge of the club next year.
Despite all the doom and gloom surrounding the Gunners at the moment, a top four finish is not completely out of the question and the club could also finish the season with the FA Cup if they can beat Chelsea in the final.
