Arsenal have completed the signing of FC Schalke 04 left-back Sead Kolašinac on a five-year deal according to reports in Germany.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international is out of contract at the end of the season and becomes a free agent on June 30.
Kolasinac has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates over the last few months with some suggesting he has already passed a medical for the Gunners.
Chelsea and Manchester City had also been chasing him but it appears that it could be all over now.
Raphael Wiesweg, a journalist who covers Schalke, tweeted: “The output of @seadk6 is fixed. Sead #Kolasinac has signed a 5-year contract at @Arsenal . #S04 #Schalke”.
Fans appeared to be saying their final goodbye’s to the left-back at Schalke 04 final home game at the weekend as rumours circulated about his move to North London.
Calciomercato writer Matteo Pedrosi also claimed Kolasinac has agreed a move Arsenal, tweeting: “Done deal: Sead #Kolasinac has signed a 5-year contract with @Arsenal.”
Arsene Wenger was asked about Kolasinac after the report but said: “We can deny that story at the moment. Nothing has been concluded with anybody.
“I think it is important we do not talk about transfers.”
The signing could leave the futures of current Arsenal left-backs Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs in doubt.
