Sead Kolasinac has already been in London to sign a contract with Arsenal after it was claimed he agreed to join the club on a free transfer this summer.

  • Kolasinac unlikely to play for Schalke this weekend as he has an adductor injury
  • Defender has 3 goals and 7 assists this season
  • He signed for Schalke on a free transfer in 2011
  • Bosnian report claims he has picked his shirt number

The 23-year-old left-back was said to be close to joining Everton only for Arsenal to swoop in with a larger wage offer and snatch him away from the Toffees.

The news first broke around lunchtime on Friday with a report coming from Bosnia claiming that the player had agreed a deal with Arsenal.

With Arsenal expected to offer Kieran Gibbs a new contract, it is not yet clear what this all means for Nacho Monreal. He is wanted by Athletico Bilbao, a club he has said he wouldn’t mind playing for.
