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