Kolasinac staying with Arsenal

Despite manging to arrange last day loan moves for Hector Bellerín, Reiss Nelson, and goalkeeper Alex Runarsson, Sead Kolasinac remains an Arsenal player.

The Bosnian international spent the second half of last season on loan with Schalke, and with less than one year left on his current deal at the Emirates, it was widely assume that he would be moving in this summer.

However, a proposed move to Fenerbahçe in Turkey collapsed over his personal demands. He wanted a three-year contract worth €3 million (£2.6 million) a year, and wanted the same amount to be paid to him as a signing-on bonus.

That was too much for the Super Lig side, although, with the transfer window there open for a further week, there may be room for negotiation.

 All the signs though are that the Gunners may be stuck with the 28-year old, unless they can find some way of terminating his contract early.
