Sead Kolasinac to Arsenal not a done deal yet
There were reports last week that Arsenal had completed a deal to sign Schalke’s left-back Sead Kolasinac.
However, it appears as though those reports were a little premature.
Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol reported that the player’s father told Bosnian TV that he will make a decision this week.

The player’s contract expires at the end of the season and will be available on a free. Everton and Juventus had been strongly linked with the player but it appears to be down to Arsenal or Milan.
The 23-year-old has 17 caps for Bosnia and Herzegovina and has developed a good reputation in Germany.
Arsenal have been looking to improve at left-back with Nacho Monreal’s form declining and Kieran Gibbs looking likely to leave the club in the summer.
It seems as though Arsenal are favourites to secure the signing and he could be the perfect player to come in and fill a need. Even better, he would come in at no cost, allowing more of the budget to be spent on other positions.
