We’ve truly entered silly season now, with websites frantically trying to be first to everything.
A typical example by a desperate site is Italian site TuttoMercatoWeb, who claim that Arsenal are interested in signing Sead Kolasinac of Schalke 04, with report that ‘sources close to the British club confirm that the Gunners are trying to bring the Bosnian to London for the summer to come’.
The 23-year-old’s contract with Schalke 04 runs out in 2017, meaning he is currently free to speak to anyone regarding a deal for the summer, but Juventus are trying to get a deal done this month.
Arsenal currently have two established left back and the recent deal for Cohen Bramall means Arsenal may not be signing any other player for that position.
However, don’t get us wrong, the Arsenal interest on paper makes sense, with Nacho Monreal now on the wrong side of 30, and the Gunners negotiating now for next summer is a clever move.
