Sead Kolasinac news

Kolasinac to leave Arsenal in January?

Arsenal are optimistic of offloading Sead Kolasinac when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Bosnian is currently the third-choice left-back with Kieran Tierney and Nuno Tavares ahead of him in the pecking order.

He has made four appearances for the club this term, but his future appears elsewhere with his contract expiring next summer.

According to, the Gunners are hopeful of offloading Kolasinac in January in the hope of garnering a transfer fee.

Kolasinac was heavily linked with Fenerbahce during the summer, but the 28-year-old rejected to accept a significant pay-cut.

The Turkish outfit were willing to pay around £2.5m for his services, and it is unclear whether they will return for him this winter.

The Gunners are likely to make at least one signing during the next transfer window. A new midfielder could be the priority for the club.

With Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny off to the African Cup of Nations in January, the club are determined to fill the void.

There has recently been speculation that the Gunners could attempt to sign Dani Ceballos on a third loan spell from Real Madrid.
