Arsenal have shown their intent to compete for titles next season as the North Londoners have signed Schalke 04 and Bosnia international defender, Sead Kolasinac
The Bosnian defender is out of contract at the end of the season has been linked with a move to Arsenal over the last few months.
And according to Sky Sports, the left-back has agreed terms with Arsenal and will become a Gunners player on July 1.
Sky Sports reporter Jim White tweeted this afternoon: “Sead Kolasinac to join Arsenal from Schalke on July 1.”
Reports in Germany surfaced over the weekend claiming the 23-year-old had put pen to paper on a deal at the Emirates until 2022.
Raphael Wiesweg, a journalist who covers Schalke, tweeted: “The transfer of @seadk6 is fixed. Sead #Kolasinac has signed a 5-year contract at @Arsenal. #S04 #Schalke”
Kolasinac has made 36 appearances for Schalke this season, scoring three goals and providing nine assists in the process.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has switched to a 3-4-3 formation in recent weeks, and Kolasinac’s attacking threat on the left-flank is likely to have caught his attention.
Kolasinac’s performances are also said to have attracted interest from Premier League rivals Manchester City and Chelsea – but Arsenal appear to have won the race for his signature.
