Arsenal ready to sell defender amid Serie A interest

Sead Kolasinac news

Kolasinac set for Arsenal exit

Arsenal are prepared to sanction the permanent exit of Sead Kolasinac this summer, reports.

Kolasinac fell out-of-favour under Mikel Arteta last term, and he was loaned out to Schalke 04 in January.

The left-back was immediately handed the captain's armband, but he could not save them from relegation.

He has 12 months left on his contract, and the Gunners are prepared to cash in on his services this summer.

Lazio and Napoli are interested in signing him. The Gunners are anticipating a fee of £4m through his sale.

The Gunners played without a deputy left-back for Kieran Tierney during the second half of last season.

They are searching for a new signing. Their focus lies on landing a young player over an experienced one.

Hibernian's Josh Doig has been heavily linked with a move, but they could face competition for his services.

Celtic and Leeds United are interested in the teenager, and could assure him a regular starting role next season.
