Bundesliga full-back agrees Arsenal contract

Kolasinac to join Arsenal this summer

Schalke 04 full-back Sead Kolasinac has reportedly finalised a four-year contract ahead of his potential move to the Emirates in the summer.

The Bosnian footballer will arrive on a free transfer with his existing deal at Schalke due to expire at the end of the season.

Recent speculation suggested that the 23-year-old was mulling over a move to the Emirates with AC Milan also keen on his signature.

However, a report from The Mail suggests that the player has eventually agreed to a four-year deal with the north London giants, and he will link up with the club when the season comes to a close.

Kolasinac, who is normally a left-back by trade, has also featured in the centre-back and holding midfield positions previously, and this could provide the Gunners with a flexible option ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

The former German youth international has featured at left wing-back on occasions this term, and he could gain the position over Nacho Monreal, should Arsene Wenger stick with the new 3-4-2-1 formation.

Kolasinac is understood to have settled his transfer to north London after he received assurances that manager Arsene Wenger would be offered a contract extension beyond the summer.
