Kolasinac wanted in Italy

Napoli and AS Roma are both interested in Sead Kolasinac of Arsenal, according to Sky Sports.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international arrived to the Emirates as a free agent from Schalke 04 in 2017. He competed for the left-back spot with Nacho Monreal for two years, and just as the Spaniard left this summer, the club acquired the services of Kieran Tierney from Celtic. Kolasinac has so far played 88 games and scored five goals for the Gunners.

Napoli, currently under the command of former AC Milan player and head coach Gennaro Gattuso, are keen to get the 26-year-old to Naples in January, which is probably an idea Arsenal won’t be prepared to consider given Tierney’s injury record (though Kolasinac’s is also far from ideal). Roma, on the other hand, are already planning for 2020/21 and apparently want the move happen in the summer next year.

Kolasinac is tied to Arsenal until the summer of 2022.
