Arsenal, in a creative way that shows that their social media game is top of the charts, have confirmed the arrival of Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer from Schalke.

Kolasinac will officially join the club in July, when pre-season commences. Arsenal fought off interest from Juventus, Milan and Manchester City to capture the 23-year old, with speculation rife that his signing showed Arsene Wenger was going to remain at the club. Kolasinac, who can operate as a left back and a left wing-back, is a front-foot defender, as are most of Arsenal’s defensive players. His versatility, and comfort as either a left back or wing back, will enable Arsenal to switch from three to four as needed, and will also allow Nacho Monreal to play as a left-sided centre back in a back three without the downgrade in technical quality at wing back as there was at times this season.
