To say the mood in the Arsenal booth here in the Transfer Tavern is solemn today would be an understatement, but the Daily Mail’s update regarding potential summer business may pick up some Gunners supporters’ spirits.
In the wake of a humiliating 3-0 loss at Crystal Palace that leaves the Londoners’ top four hopes hanging in the balance, the aforementioned outlet have revealed that talks regarding a move for impressive Schalke defender Saed Kolasinac are underway.
The Bosnia & Herzegovina international is due to be a free agent when his contract at the Veltins Arena expires in a few months’ time and given his age, 23, and talent, a host of teams are interested in him.
Kolasinac operates primarily as a left-back, but can also play centrally in defence or as a holding midfielder.
As well as claiming talks for the player are happening, the Daily Mail also reveal that meetings with scouts have taken place to talk through targets with Arsene Wenger, with up to five additions being sought this summer.
Arsene Wenger is the right manager for Arsenal – agree?
