Arsenal outcast agrees to leave the club for free

Sead Kolasinac has agreed to rip up his Arsenal contract and leave the Gunners for free this summer.

The Bosnian is out of Mikel Arteta’s plans and the Spaniard has even replaced him in the squad with Nuno Tavares.

He spent the second half of last season out on loan at Schalke 04 and the Gunners hoped he would secure a permanent transfer to the German side.

However, they were relegated at the end of the season and they cannot afford his wages in the German second division.

The defender is one of the players that are surplus to requirements and he faces the prospect of not playing regularly if he remains at Arsenal.

Journalist, Ekrem Konur, has now revealed that the defender is in talks with the Gunners to rip up his current deal so that he can leave.

He says that the club and the player will meet again for one more time when they will both reach a final agreement on the decision.

He tweeted: “Sead #Kolasinac has given up most of the money he will receive and #Arsenal have agreed to terminate his contract.

“The meeting will be held for the last time next week and he will officially leave

“Memo€ 1.8M salary, 2 + 1-year contract”

Football London reports that he could join Fenerbahce next, where he would link up with his former teammate, Mesut Ozil.

The report claims the German has personally recommended the left-back to the Turkish club.

    One more deadwood out of the club if not off the pay roll. Everyone knew Kola was going. Arsenal paid all of Ozils contract even when he left. One can only assume despite the agents “spin talk” of ripping up contracts this is only to placate Arsenal fans. Turkish clubs post covid can’t pay 120k to average Joe’s. Arsenal will be subsidizing this no doubt.
    Still the “correction” continues.

      So that’s what you got from the article?It must be really exhausting to believe that everything is either a lie ,a PR stunt or some sort of conspiracy theory,people constantly complain about deadwood but when one tries his best to leave the club when others couldn’t even be bothered to,some can’t even give him credit for it,I find it sad really.

    The Fenebahce Manager Vitor Pereira now has two players to watch to ensure he isn’t knifed in the back.

      Or a player who can save him from such a scenario? Cant understand your dislike to MO and Sead the same way you cant understand why people mocked Unai here! Because we agree on almost every other things except this.

    This is my take on the team, excluding the manager:

    The midfield is too imbalanced. More often than not, your midfield should consist of 3 players. By all accounts, these players should give the team different strengths and tasks of what to do.

    Usually there’s one who’s more defensive-minded. If you don’t have time to see all the matches of European leagues, you can follow some key stats on how these kinds of players fare: tackles and interceptions. Players like Kante and Ndidi have EXCELLED in these stats by also playing this role. And since of last year, so has Bissouma. Torreira played this role in Sampdoria.

    Who is our defensive midfielder? We don’t have any. Xhaka can’t do it, Partey does it in some games. Elneny or ASL are not ones either.

    Also, often there’s one more offensive-minded CM, or one who goes both ways: box-to-box. We don’t have that either.

    To me all our midfielders are in the same mould: static, not great in air, not either defensive or offensive, languid, side-ways passing. They seem to be “jack-of-all-trades” but masters of none.

    Kola off the wage bill than. Who next? Best of luck Kola it just didnt work out here for you.

      Finally a well wishing comment.👍

    👍 How we haven’t moved for Bissouma is baffling, put him next to partey/Lokonga and our midfield instantly becomes more dynamic, able to cover ground. The Fact that Arteta can’t see this is a big problem. The lack of mobility(Xhaka) in our midfield compared to the top 4 +Leicester is clear as night and day and we will continue to struggle especially against the big teams if Xhaka is our lynch pin.

    Hope you rediscover your booming runs Kola. Best of luck wherever you go!
    Once a gunner always a gunner!

      Sid your last line is simply a meaningless slogan and has no truth, in many cases. In SOME players it does, but NOT in Kolas’s case.

  7. Hila says:

    Kola is a beast If you have ever watched him play

  8. VasC says:

    Can Kolasinac outrun Xhaka in a foot race?
    Yes.

    Can Kolasinac run with the ball at his feet better than Xhaka?
    Yes.

    Can Kolasinac out muscle opponents better than Xhaka?
    Yes.

    “Ok, then. Let’s rip up Kola’s contract and give an extension to Xhaka!!!”

    Trust the process!!! COYG!!!
