ARSENAL skipper Laurent Koscielny has reportedly snubbed an SOS from Monaco boss Thierry Henry.

The Gunners legend, 41, is struggling to add experience to his squad after a rocky start in management.

And Le10 Sport claim Koscielny, 33, was approached about a move to France last month but chose to remain at the Emirates.

Cesc Fabregas is already heading to the principality club after agreeing to leave Chelsea for a huge signing bonus and chance to play regularly.

And Henry, whose young side are five points from safety, continues to use his Arsenal connections to try and secure deals.

Veteran Brazilian defender Naldo has also come in and has inspired Monaco to back-to-back cup victories.

But the hard work begins again on Sunday with a tricky trip to Marseille in Ligue 1.

Koscielny has struggled with injuries since Unai Emery took over the Gunners.


But he is back in training ahead of tomorrow’s early kick-off against West Ham.

The Frenchman is expected to return to the starting XI and lead out his side.
