Arsenal handed unexpected injury boost as £100k-a-week man is fit again for Norwich clash
Arsenal have been handed an unexpected fitness boost as Sead Kolasinac started for Bosnia last night.
Kolasinac limped off during Bosnia’s last match, which caused his international boss to admit that he was very worried about the injury he had picked up.
At the time there were fears around Arsenal that the 28-year-old could be sidelined for weeks.
However, he has already seemingly made it back to fitness as he started against Kazakhstan last night.
Kolasinac was only risked for 45 minutes, but the scores were locked at 0-0 when he was on the pitch.
After he came off, the game opened up and ultimately finished as a 2-2 draw.
Back in the plans?
Kolasinac, who is on a £100,000-a-week contract (Spotrac), should now be fit enough to feature for Arsenal at the weekend, should Mikel Arteta pick him.
It was widely expected that Kolasinac would leave Arsenal this summer, but he started in their last game against Manchester City, suggesting that he could have a part to play.
Arsenal are under pressure to get three points against Norwich, after starting the season with three straight defeats.
