The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern think that they will have the edge over Man City for this deal…
According to German publication Bild, both Arsenal and Manchester City have lodged offers to Schalke defender Sead Kolasnic over a summer move, with the left back’s contract set to expire at the end of the season.
Indeed, Bild notes that he is certain to leave this summer – with Arsenal and Man City seemingly both the front runners for the deal.
It is easy to see how Kolasinac would fit in at both the Emirates and the Etihad, with a defensive rebuild undoubtedly necessary for both sides. Monreal has struggled for Arsenal this year, whilst Clichy looks past his best for Man City – leaving the door open for an arrival for the Bosnian defender.
This deal has been somewhat of a roller-coaster saga for the Arsenal fans in the pub, with reports in recent months suggesting that a deal to take him to the Emirates had been completed – though it appears as though those reports were some way off the mark.
