Arsenal fans react as Schalke drops potential transfer hint on Kolasnic
Schalke have seemingly dropped a transfer hint surrounding on-loan Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac.
The Bundesliga club announced on their official website the list of players who will be leaving this summer, with former Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi one of the ten names mentioned. Yet the statement had no mention of Kolasinac despite being at the Ruhr-based team on loan.
The 27-year-old left-back re-joined Schalke in the January transfer window on a short-term loan deal in an attempt to help the Bundesliga side survive the drop to the second-tier. However, the Bosnian international was unable to stop this from happening, yet it appears that Kolasinac could be remaining in Germany beyond this season.
Kolasinac is reportedly set to leave Arsenal this summer as reported by football.london, and supporters on social media believed this update from Schalke was a clear hint that the defender will depart north London in the coming weeks.
Here’s what some Arsenal fans had to say about the cryptic statement on Twitter…
No word of Kolasinac… interesting

Nothing about Sead though?

Fingers crossed they want him!

I hope Kola leaves but even if we were to let him go on a free, I find it hard to imagine Schalke would be able to shoulder his 140k pw wages.
I wonder if we will subsidise or if he will take a pay cut etc.

As well as Kolasinac, the likes of Lucas Torreria, Matteo Guendouzi and Ainsley Maitland-Niles could leave Arsenal this summer, with all three also out on loan.
