Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Schalke defender Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer.

Age: 23
Position: Left-back
Nationality: Bosnian
International caps: 17


He was born in Germany but is ethnically Bosnian. Kolasinac started his youth career as a central defender and occasionally played as a holding midfielder.

However, it’s as a left-back that he’s made his name in the senior ranks.

Part of his appeal is his versatility because he can play across the defensive line, he’s been deployed as a left wing-back and also in the left midfield position.

He was chosen in the Bundesliga team of the season for 2016/17

Here is what he had to say in his first interview with Arsenal.



You can take a look at his highlights from last season below.
