Inter Milan have opted against signing Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny, according to Sky Sport Italia (via Football-Italia.net).
The Gunners defender is reportedly seeking a new challenge as his career comes to an end but the Nerazzurri have turned down the opportunity to sign the Frenchman.
Manager Antonio Conte is believed to have decided that the club have enough centre-backs ahead of next season.
Diego Godin is arriving on a free transfer from Atletico Madrid, while they already have Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij, Joao Miranda and Andrea Ranocchia.
Koscielny played 29 times in all competitions for Arsenal last season, having recovered from a serious Achilles injury to lead his side out in the Europa League final.
However, with just one year left on his contract, the Gunners may be looking to cash in and find a younger replacement.
Koscielny has also been linked with a return to France in recent weeks with Ligue One side Rennes believed to be interested in signing the centre-back.
