Arsenal Lining-Up Move For Bosnian International
Arsenal are lining-up a move for Schalke full-back Sead Kolasnniac but face competition from several Italian clubs for the Bosnian international’s signature
With the summer transfer window finally open for business, managers are working hard trying to strengthen their squads ahead of next season so we’ll bring you all the news and gossip. Today, Arsenal are linked with Sead Kolasniac….
Arsenal are lining-up a move for Schalke full-back Sead Kolasnniac but face stiff competition from several Italian clubs for the Bosnian international’s signature, according to Tutto Mercato.
Kolasinac has been on the books at Schalke since joining the club in 2011 and he progressed through the youth system before breaking into the first team in 2012, with the 22-year-old now firmly established as a regular in the starting eleven.
The youngster is predominantly played at left-back but is also capable of playing further up the field and he played a key role in helping Bosnia reach their first ever World Cup finals in Brazil last summer.
It appears his hugely impressive form had led to interest from North London as Italian outlet Tutto Mercato claims that Arsenal have identified Kolasniac as a potential target with Arsene Wenger now understood to be weighing-up a move for the young defender.
The news comes amid intense speculation that the boss is in the market for a new left-back with Nacho Monreal tipped to head back to Spain and join Athletic Bilbao this summer [via talkSPORT], so it looks like Kolasniac is being eyed as a potential replacement.
However, we aren’t the only club showing a keen interest as Tutto Mercato claim that the likes of Roma, Juventus and Fiorentina are also on the player’s trail so it appears we’ll face some stiff competition for his signature.
I’ve said all summer that I’d be surprised if Nacho Monreal leaves the Emirates but the rumours of him returning to Spain refuse to go away and Kolasniac is the latest left-back to be linked with a move in recent weeks.

He’s been excellent for Schalke over the past couple of seasons and is developing into a fine full-back, so if Monreal does end up heading back to his homeland, I’d be glad to see Kolasniac come in as his replacement.
