Kolasinac joins Arsenal on free transfer

Arsenal have confirmed that Schalke defender Sead Kolasinac will join the club on July 1 as their first signing of the transfer window.

The 23-year-old is set to join the Premier League side on a free transfer as his contract at the German outfit approaches its expiry at the end of the month.

“Subject to the completion of all regulatory processes, the defender will start pre-season training in July,” said an Arsenal statement.

Schalke added that the Bosnia-Herzegovina left-back has signed a deal that will keep him at the Emirates Stadium until 2022, according to the BBC.

Kolasinac came through the Karlsruhe youth system before moving to Hoffenheim, then Stuttgart, and finally Schalke, where he has played since 2012.
