Napoli and AS Roma want to sign Arsenal left-back Sead Kolasinac, in January and the summer respectively, according to reports.
Sky Sports News report that Napoli are keen on signing Sead Kolasinac in the January transfer window. The club are going into their first window under new head coach Gennaro Gattuso, as he tries to make the team his own.
Napoli are also in terrible form, as they’ve won just one league game in nine (sounds familiar). They’ll be considering anything they can do to turn that around.
AS Roma also want the Arsenal left-back, but they want a transfer next summer. Aleksandar Kolarov is 34 and out of contract next year, so they need a replacement.
Napoli could have an advantage given recent rumours of Arsenal interest in Dries Mertens. If the reports are true, a swap deal with the Serie A club could work for both parties.
For now, Kolasinac is recovering from an injury. Even when he’s back, Arsenal probably won’t consider a January sale unless they have a replacement ready. Kieran Tierney is out until March, so Mikel Arteta needs Kolasinac back as soon as possible.
