Barcelona to make bid for Arsenal star Kolasinac


Sead Kolasinac news

Kolasinac to depart Arsenal?

Barcelona are considering a move for former Schalke left-back Sead Kolasinac. The Arsenal and Bosnia international defender has caught the eye of Barca's scouting team and according to a report from Spain, the club are ready to spend 30 million euros to recruit the player.



Kolasinac, who arrived at the Emirates on a free transfer two years ago, is happy with the Gunners but is also ready to listen to offers if they come his way this summer

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has hinted that he is ready to bring in new faces ahead of a rebuilding programme and that could mean Kolasinac is free to leave the club.

Kolasinac has also sprung up a close friendship with midfielder Mesut Ozil, who could too also leave Arsenal this summer after a reported falling out with manager Emery.

25-year-old Karlsruhe-born Kolasinac has three years remaining on his contract with Arsenal and has previously expressed frustration at playing second fiddle to Spanish defender Nacho Monreal. Arsenal also are believed to have to sell their top players in order to balance the books after another season without Champions League football.
