MANCHESTER CITY have joined Arsenal in the hunt for Schalke’s out of contract star Sead Kolasinac.
The Bosnian will reportedly have a straight choice of the Premier League giants this summer.
And German newspaper Bild claim that he has been offered £120,000-a-week by both clubs.
The Bosnia-Herzegovina is available on a free transfer at the end of the season and had appeared set to switch to the Emirates.
Arsene Wenger has been a long-term admirer of the left wing-back and believed that he had secured his services.
It has even been claimed by some sources that the 23-year-old had already undergone a medical and was due to be announced as one of their first summer signings.

They are prepared to match the wage offer from their rivals, which will see the man nicknamed the “Bosnian Bull” bag himself a huge pay rise from his current £31,000-a-week contract.
AC Milan have also shown an interest, but the it is 99 per cent certain that he will end up in England.
Bild claim that Kolasinac is now weighing up which club he feels he will progress better at.
And the results for City and Arsenal until the end of the season could both play a huge role in his next destination.
Both clubs are battling it out for a top four spot, and whichever misses out on a Champions League place could also suffer the blow of being snubbed by the Schalke ace.
