Laurent Koscielny, Olivier Giroud and Francis Coquelin have all signed new contracts at Arsenal.

In the piece of contract news that all at the Emirates Stadium was waiting for, the Gunners have confirmed that the French trio have penned new long-term deals.

“We are very pleased that three important members of our team have committed to us for the long term,” Wenger told Arsenal’s official website. “Francis has made tremendous technical strides over the past few years because he’s so focused every day.

“Olivier has big experience in the game now and has become a more and more complete player since joining us. Laurent is of course a key part of our squad and I believe one of the best defenders in the world today. So overall, this is great news for us.”

Midfielder Coquelin has made 22 appearances for the club in all competitions this season, while Koscielny has missed just one game in the Champions League and Premier League all season.

Giroud has been on the periphery more than his countrymen, but has scored four goals in his last four games.
