Arsenal are expecting to sell Sead Kolasinac this summer, amid interest from at least a couple of European clubs in a permanent deal.
Football.London report that Sead Kolasinac is expected to leave Arsenal this summer, and there are a couple of clubs interested in him.
Kolasinac’s contract with Arsenal ends in 2022, and he’s spent the last few months on loan with Schalke. The German club are one of the two clubs in for him, but they’re going to find the move difficult financially after succumbing to relegation from the Bundesliga.
As a result, it’s worth considering the alternative, which is Lazio of Serie A. Both clubs are interested in a permanent deal for the player.
Kolasinac almost joined Bayer Leverkusen last summer, according to the same report, but the deal fell through on deadline day. There’s no suggestion yet that they’ll come back in for him this time around.
It’s clear Schalke want to bring Kolasinac back next season regardless of this latest update. The club didn’t name him in the list of players they’re letting go this summer, even though all of the rest of their loanees made the list.
The encouraging thing is that it’s not just relegated Schalke in the mix. The more interested parties, the more likely Arsenal might actually get some money for the transfer, rather than just cancelling his contract like Mustafi or Sokratis.
