DONE DEAL? Schalke star 1st Arsenal signing of summer!

There have already been a large number of Arsenal transfer rumours in the football media about the young Bosnian international star Sead Kolasinic and his possible transfer to Arsenal this summer on a free transfer, but now it looks like the deal could already be done, with the Daily Express claiming that an announcement is imminent.

The paper claims that the deal has been done for some time, with Kolasinac coming to the end of his contract with the Bundesliga club Schalke at the end of the season. The reason for the delay in announcing the deal, according to the report, was the issue surrounding the future of Arsene Wenger as the Arsenal manager.

We still have to wait for an official announcement from the Gunners but whoever is in charge of the players Wikipedia page appears to have jumped the gun because he is being referred to as an Arsenal player already, although this could just be a bit of online mischief. His Wikipedia page says, or at least it did earlier, “He will be joining Arsenal on 1 July 2017,ahead of 2017-18 season.”

All signs point to this being true, though, especially the fact that the versatile star ( most often played at left back) will cost us nothing but the reported annual wages of £7.5 million. If that salary is correct it does show that Wenger and the club think very highly of him, so is the first Arsenal signing of the summer a very positive one indeed?

    Good start but he will have to keep going. Otherwise it will not be enough.
    Most important thing is probably Sanchez,Özil and Ox for whom there contracts need to extended. If not things must be clear and transparent towards us the fans!!
    Wenger will have to make tough but clear decisions on players like: Walcott, Giroud, Gibbs, Chambers, Ospina, Perez, Wilshere, Debuchy is obviously gone, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Campbell and Szcezesny.
    Likely some players from the youth squad will be more involved, players that we have seen last season in the early stage of the FA Cup and EFL Cup. But clearly an influx of top talent and world class, proven players will be a must (3-4)…with the wage bill he’ll probably free along with the money he gets back from some of those deals he should have a proper war chest to go out there and deliver. Walk the talk Mr. Wenger!! The floor is yours!

    -Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk agrees to join Liverpool.
    😉👉 You Fifa lovers can now cross him of your fantasy Arsenal list.

    -Arda Turan’s agent has rubbished talks of his client leaving Barcelona, he also states that the player is annoyed with the rumours linking him to Arsenal. 😂👉 Thank God for that, I wasn’t too keen on him anyway.

    -Newcastle have balked at Arsenal’s valuation for Gibbs and will now look elsewhere. 😂 👉 That’s madness, they are willing to sell Perez & Szczesny for 14 million,yet they want 15 million for Gibbs.😮

      ive read West Brom as keen on Gibbs. 15mill is a lot for him, but he’s English, so any price is possible, lol. And yeah, idk why we need Virgil when we have a surplus of defenders. Kos, Mustafi, Holding, Mert, and Monreal are all good for starting in a back 3, and Gabriel is solid backup. And Turan is a good player, but if Arsenal want to compete for a title he is not. It needs to be someone exceptional.

    This team is no where near competing for Premier league. Well I feel this team is no where near winning Europa league right now (without any transfers)!

    2015/16 season when we bought just Petr Cech was one of the most arrogant decisions Wenger’s ever made. And we lost league to F***in Leicester. If we would have won the league that year, we would all be praising Wenger, but he brought it all on himself.

    Kolasinic will probably add that steel which is missing in our defense. But we need that is not the problem here. All winning teams have atleast 2 good Forwards in starting 11. We should do that to!

    Real Madrid are set to blow Arsenal out of the water with ‘€135m bid for Kylian Mbappe. 😕👉 Real Madrid have made Mbappe their main target now that Hazard is out injured with a fractured ankle, which he sustained on international duty and is likely to miss the charity shield game against us, at the start of next season.

      all these Mbappe bids. I bet if someone asked Monaco they will say they have received absolutely no offers yet. That doesn’t sell paper tho.
