Arsenal have suffered an injury scare on international duty, after Sead Kolasinac was carried off against France, as per comments on Faktor.

Injury blow

Kolasinac was on the receiving end of a terrible tackle from Jules Kounde, as he had to be substituted off ahead of time.

Kounde saw red for his troubles, but it may be that the Arsenal man faces a long time on the sidelines now.

Indeed, Bosnia manager Ivaylo Petev’s injury update did not sound promising for Arsenal fans.

“I talked to him, he doesn’t look very well,” he said.

Double blow?

Petev’s words look like bad news for Arsenal for multiple reasons.

Not only will Arsenal’s defensive options be reduced if Kolasinac is sidelined, but it could also cost him a move.

With the Turkish transfer window still open, the Gunners may have been opened to selling the left-back.

However, if he is injured for any length of time, it may be that he sticks around until at least January.

It is actually rather surprising that Kolasinac is still at Arsenal at this stage.

But Mikel Arteta started him in the Gunners’ last game as the lost 5-0 to Manchester City, which proves that he could still have a part to play this season.

Bosnia ended up picking up a 1-1 draw against the 10 men of France last night.
