Bayer Leverkusen Has Offered Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac A Longer-Term Deal

According to German media, Arsenal defender, Sead Kolasinac has emerged subject of serious interest from the Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen.

Sports Bild via Sports Witness claim that the Bosnian is wanted by Die Werkself this summer.

The left-back will find it difficult to get playing time this season after watching Mikel Arteta bolster his defence with the likes of Gabriel Magalhaes.

Kolasinac lost his spot on the team to Kieran Tierney last season, but he was given chances to play as a left centre-back.

However, the north London club now have Pablo Mari and Gabriel who are natural left centre-backs and they can afford to sell Kolasinac.

The report says that Leverkusen is keen to add a left centre-back to their team and they have identified the former Schalke 04 man as a top option adding that the club is looking to begin talks over Kolasinac transfer in the coming weeks.

He is reportedly available for around 10 million euros, but he is on a high wage at the Emirates.
