Arsenal have revealed that the left-back Sead Kolasinac will join them this summer from German club Schalke. The 23-year-old, Bosnia-Herzegovina international will join on a free transfer and become an Arsenal player on 1st July when the transfer window opens.
The statement issued by the club said, “Subject to the completion of all regulatory processes, the defender will start pre-season training in July.’’ Schalke confirmed that the defender had signed a deal “which runs until 2022”.
The Bundesliga club also tweeted: “Good luck in the future and thank you for six great years.” Last season, Kolasinac helped Schalke finish 10th in the Bundesliga, while they reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League where they were knocked out by eventual beaten finalists Ajax.
Sead Kolasinac said, “Arsenal has a huge tradition and I followed the club as a young boy, in the days of Jens Lehmann and Thierry Henry. Arsenal has always been a club that is well recognised in Europe and I’m pleased to be here.’’
He added, “I’m a player who will try to help the team as well as I can. My strengths are my mentality. I think left back is where I feel most comfortable. I can play as part of a three at the back too or further forward. I’m really flexible.”
