Arsenal ultimatum for Koscielny

The Sun is confident Arsene Wenger will succeed in his alleged bid to lure highly-rated Lorient centre-back Laurent Koscielny to the Emirates before this week runs out.

The report believes the 24-year-old has all but agreed to terms of a four-year deal with the Arsenal and is hopeful the necessary paper-work will be thrashed out in no time, so he can complete the move without any problems.

This supposedly impressive development has prompted the Arsenal manager who I think should be in South Africa by now, to issue out an ultimatum to Lorient urging them to make up their minds concerning a new improved offer of £8m, which according to the reports will expire on Thursday - a day before World Cup soccer hostilities begin officially in South Africa.
