Arsenal left-back Sead Kolasinac could reportedly terminate the final year of his contract with the north London club.

The Bosnian fell out-of-favour during the first half of last season as Kieran Tierney became the regular left-back.

The Gunners loaned him out to Schalke 04 in January despite the fact that they had no specialist back-up for Tierney.

According to Ekrem Konur, Kolasinac is on the radar of many Italian and Turkish clubs, and he could leave on a free transfer.

He has one year left on his Gunners deal, and there could be a mutual termination of his contract in the coming days.

Kolasinac was also linked with a permanent move to Schalke, but it appears unlikely after they were relegated from Bundesliga.

The Gunners are prepared for the departure of Kolasinac, and have already landed a replacement in Nuno Tavares from Benfica.

Tavares is expected to be the club's first summer signing. They are also on the verge of signing Anderlecht midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga.
