Bordeaux want to bring Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny back to Ligue 1, write L'Equipe.
The Frenchman left his homeland in 2010 when he joined the Gunners from Lorient.
The centre-back has since made 353 appearances for Arsenal, winning back-to-back FA Cups in 2014 and 2015.
However, his future is now in doubt with Bordeaux making his signing a priority this summer.

Koscielny is said to be interested in Bordeaux's project and could ask Arsenal to leave a year before his contract expires.
