Over the weekend there were reports that Arsenal had agreed a deal to bring Bonsian defender Sead Kolasinac to the club.
However, it seems they may have been premature with the player’s father telling local television that no deal had been completed yet, and that the left-back was also in discussions with AC Milan.
“Sead has not signed anything with anyone,” he said. “It is true that he was in touch with Arsenal, but he is not Arsenal’s player yet.
“This week I will meet Sead and his agent. We will sit down and finally make a decision.”
So, there you go. Could it be that the situation at Arsenal right now is giving him pause for thought? It’s certainly not as attractive a prospect as it used to be, and with doubts over the future of Arsene Wenger and all the other turmoil, it might be an issue the Bosnian is considering.
Of course it could also just be the normal stuff that goes on with transfers, so until there’s something official from either Arsenal or Schalke, we’ll be left waiting.
