Koscielny unsure on potential Marseille switch

Updated: 

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny says he has no idea whether he will sign for Marseille, acknowledging he is flattered by the reported interest from his boyhood club.

Marseille - who finished fifth in Ligue 1 last season - are looking to make an impact in the transfer market having been taken over by American business man Frank McCourt in 2016.

Koscielny's Arsenal team-mate and compatriot Olivier Giroud has also been linked with a switch to the south of France.

But Koscielny told Telefoot: "I have a contract with Arsenal, I even signed an extension last November until [June] 2020. I feel very good there.

"I have always said that I was a Marseille fan when I was younger. When a mythical club like Marseille contact you, it is good.

"But will I sign for them? I have no idea at all."
