Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny is risking his legacy at the club by refusing to travel on the pre-season tour of the US, says Gunners legend Ian Wright.

"It doesn't set a good example, Arsenal need to do something quick," said former England striker Wright.



He added: "I love you Laurent but this is a poor decision."



On returning from a summer break, Koscielny informed the club of his wish to leave but Arsenal rejected the request.

Koscielny has made 353 appearances since joining Arsenal for £10m in 2010.

Arsenal finished fifth last season and lost the Europa League final to Chelsea in May.

"For our captain to refuse to go on a pre-season tour after nine years of unbelievable service, to kind of destroy your legacy a little bit in respect of refusing to play for a club that you've professed love for, is something that is baffling me.
