Arsenal complete first summer signing

Arsenal have completed the free transfer of Sead Kolasinac from Schalke, according to reports in Germany.

The Gunners have been linked with the Bosnian left-back for a number of months, but have reportedly been battling with Manchester City and AC Milan for his signature.

Journalist Raphael Wiesweg, who covers all things Schalke, as well as Calciomercato’s Matteo Pedrosi have both claimed that the deal to take Kolasinac to the Emirates is now complete.

Kolasinac is out of contract at the end of June, and has of course been free to negotiate a new contract with any club since January.

It is believed that 23-year old has agreed a five year deal at Arsenal and has already completed a medical.

The news casts doubt over the futures of current Arsenal left-backs Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal.
