Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny is reportedly being targeted by AC Milan, who are interested in signing the centre-back this summer, according to Telefoot.
The report claims Milan are keen to strengthen their defence as part of a big-spending summer, as they bid to challenge for the title once again in Serie A.
The San Siro side believe he has the intelligence, tactical awareness and technique to be a big success in Italy, should he make the move.
The report also claims that Koscielny has also attracted interest from Marseille, Manchester City and clubs in the Chinese Super League.
Koscielny has become arguably one of the best centre-backs in Europe during his time at Arsenal, and only signed a new deal at the club back in January.
It seems highly unlikely that Arsenal would be tempted to allow him to leave this summer, as he remains a crucial part of Arsene Wenger’s plans.

Milan have already splashed out since the end of the campaign, bringing in Andre Silva, Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez and Franck Kessie, as they look to overhaul their squad.
However, a move for Koscielny looks harder to pull off, with the defender under contract and Arsenal under no pressure at all to sell.
