Over the last number of days there have been stories linking Arsenal with Bosnian international Sead Kolasinac.
Now, according to a report in the Guardian, the 23 year old has decided to join the Gunners ahead of Everton, who were also interested.
It’s clear that Arsenal have been in the market for a left back for some time, as a host of names have been mentioned over the last 12-18 months.
They include Ricardo Rodgriguez of Wolfsburg, Celtic’s Kieran Tierney and Leicester City youngster Ben Chilwell.
Kieran Gibbs has started just three times in the Premier League this season, and it seems that Arsene Wenger wants some competition for, and a long-term successor to, Spaniard Nacho Monreal.
If this deal does go ahead, it might offer some clues as to who might be in charge next season as it would be odd for a club to sanction a deal from a manager who won’t be around.
Kolasinac would join on a free transfer, having seen out his contract with Schalke.
