Some Arsenal fans worried as Kolasinac fails in Schalke transfer

Arsenal fans have been feeling worried after Sead Kolasinac failed to secure a transfer to Schalke.

The Bundesliga 2 outfit released a statement claiming their current financial situation meant they can’t afford to keep the Bosnian.

He was released back to the Gunners alongside, Jan-Klaas Huntelaar, who is now a free agent.

Following his return to N5, Kolasinac has just a year left on his current deal. The 27-year-old has received interest from clubs in Italy, Germany and Turkey over a proposed transfer this summer.

Kolasinac has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium. He was loaned out to Schalke as a result, earning relegation from the Bundesliga.

His departure meant the club were without an out-and-out left-back for the second half of the season. Following Kieran Tierney’s injury in the loss to Liverpool, Granit Xhaka was asked to fill in for the Scotsman.

It spoke volumes about Mikel Arteta’s lack of trust in the Bosnian and he should be the first to depart in the upcoming overhaul.
