Arsenal will sign Schalke left-back Sead Kolasinac this summer according to Sky Sports broadcaster Jim White.
The Gunners have struggled in the Premier League this season, with supporters divided over the future of manager Arsene Wenger.
And the uncertainty surrounding Wenger hasn’t been helped by the club’s poor form, as Arsenal appear set to miss out on Champions League football for the first time in the Frenchman’s reign.
However, while there are doubts as to whether Wenger will still be steering the ship after the summer, the club’s recruitment drive has already started.
Jim White confirmed that Arsenal will sign highly-rated Schalke defender Kolasinac, a player who has been closely linked with the club in recent weeks, much to the delight of the Emirates faithful:
Sead Kolasinac to join Arsenal from Schalke on July 1.

Sead Kolasinac will do nicely ?
Haven't got a fucking clue who he is but he'll do for me.
Bye Gibbs ?

Sead Kolašinac is the best full-back in the Premier League.

Kolasinac will join Arsenal on free transfer. Good signing, which also frees up more money to be spent on other positions.

Sead Kolasinac a smart pick up by Arsenal. Relishes the big games, not one to shy away from a tackle. In a word: robust.

Arsenal are currently 5th in the Premier League table, three points behind Manchester City.
However if the north London side are to have any hope of playing in the Champions League next season they will need City to drop points against West Brom or Watford.
