Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac will leave Arsenal this summer on a permanent deal.
The 27-year old has spent the second-part of the season on loan at former club Schalke, where he was given the captain’s armband in their desperate fight against relegation.
However, with the club set to playing Bundesliga 2 next season, his future is uncertain, and he will return to the Emirates where he still has one year left on his current deal.
However, his stay in London this time will be a short one, because he is not wanted back at the Emirates where he formed part of a coterie of players – Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi – who the club paid to leave in January because of the unrest that they caused in the dressing room.
Schalke want him to lead their promotion charge next season, but Lazio are also reported to be interested in the Bosnian international.
