Arsenal have signed French center-back Laurent Koscielny from Lorient on a long-term contract with the transfer fee believed to be £10m. The 24-year old defender expects to feature in the starting XI at the Emirates this season and will replace Philippe Senderos (who moved to Fulham) in the no. 6 shirt for the Gunners. Koscielny will join Continental youngsters Thomas Vermaelen and Gaël Clichy at the back alongside 27-year old Bacary Sagna.
