"We are very disappointed by Laurent's actions, which are against our clear instructions. We hope to resolve this matter and will not be providing any further comment at this time", the English Premier League club said in a statement on Thursday.
According to the Mirror, Arsenal had been in no rush to extend Koscielny's current contract which is into its final year, and as a result, he has been the subject of much interest from a number of Ligue 1 clubs including Rennes and Lyon.
Koscielny joined Arsenal from FC Lorient in 2010 for an undisclosed fee.
The north Londoners' latest bid is an improvement on their original offer for the 18-year-old defender, amid suggestions that Tottenham were also ready to enter the race.
"All the Arsenal fans are getting in touch with us telling us they wanted to sign a centre-back to play alongside Laurent Koscielny, not replace Laurent Koscielny".
Arsenal are set to take disciplinary action against their club captain, but Koscielny is hopeful that it should hasten his departure from the Emirates this summer.Читайте также: Novak Djokovic enters Wimbledon "Club 70" with Federer, Connors and Becker
Unai Emery has limited transfer funds this summer and has so far prioritised a pursuit of Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha.
This decision from Koscielny will no doubt have a huge impact on the locker room.
Koscielny subsequently became club captain under former boss Arsene Wenger.
Bordeaux's new manager Paulo Sousa was reported to have made Koscielny a "priority" this summer, wanting to use his experience and leadership to guide the club to help the club return to its once prominent role in the league.
What a mess. Koscielny hasn't conducted himself well here, and Arsenal putting this out in the open has escalated the seriousness of the situation.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
