Arsenal have stepped up their search for a new centre-back following the departure of Laurent Koscielny to French side, Bordeaux on Tuesday.

The transfer deal was officially made public this week after Koscielny forced his departure away from the club despite their desire to keep him.

However, Arsenal have lined up a number of defenders they can sign before the close of the summer transfer window. Reports disclosed that the Gunners are chasing the services of Juventus defender Daniel Rugani.
