Arsenal defender targets French call-up

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny admits he would be keen on a place in the French national team.

Koscielny hopes his move to Arsenal will help him to force his way into the France side.

The former Lorient stopper told L’Equipe: “Yes, I think I can join this group.

“We must build on a season that I play in the Champions League to gain international experience.

“But Euro 2012 is a goal for me.”
