Arsenal defender demands compensation for contract termination

Kolasinac wants wages compensated for release

Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac is reluctant to terminate the final year of his contract unless his wages are compensated.

The Bosnian started against West Bromwich Albion in midweek, but he is widely expected to leave the club.

Fenerbahce are interested in landing his signature on a two-year deal, but they are reluctant to pay any fee to sign him.

It was previously claimed that Kolasinac may give up his loyalty bonuses in order to join the Istanbul giants permanently.

However, it is now reported that the Bosnian won't accept any cuts, and wants a pay-out for the final year of his deal.

The left-back is one of the highest earners at £100,000-a-week, and the hierarchy are keen to get him off the wage bill.

It is unclear whether they will accept the defender's demands or keep him for the remainder of the current campaign.

The north London club are planning to sign a new right-back before the transfer window closes at 11pm on Tuesday.
