Arsenal running out of time to offload £10 million fringe player

Sky Sports claims that Sead Kolasinac’s move from Arsenal to Bayer Leverkusen is off after both teams failed to reach an agreement.

The Bosnian defender has been made available for transfer with the Gunners hoping to make £10m from his sale.

Finding a suitor that is ready to go all out and land him has been tough but a return to Germany on deadline day seemed to be on the cards earlier today.

The Gunners had been hoping that they would be able to offload him to the German side before the transfer window closed, but that deal seems to be off now.

The report claims that they have been informed that both teams couldn’t reach an agreement and the deal is off.

Dharmesh Sheth said on Sky Sports News: “Our colleagues in Germany have told me the deal to take Sead Kolasinac to Bayer Leverkusen is off. We’re still waiting for confirmation from Arsenal. They were hoping to get £10m in for the player and to take him off the wage bill as well. As it stands, that one is off.”

If the deal is truly off, then the defender faces a season of little football unless Arsenal struggles with injuries because he has already lost his place in the club’s first team.

    He can still join a club in this country

      The extra window is to exchange with clubs of different league levels tho. So we can exchange players with Championship, League One, etc, but not other EPL sides. So he’s def staying unless Brentford want his high wages

        Did bundesliga have same transfer deadline?
        Even premier transfer is close, its still can sell to another league country?

    Welcome home our bounty hunter.

    He came on a free and we should let him go on that basis .Yet another highly overpaid player brought in by professionals who are thankfully no longer at our Club.

      That’s not quite true Grandad – Kolasinac was brought in June 2017, as part of the new regime run by gazidis that included the three wise men who then took over from him the signing of players in and out, the contract negotiations and Head of footballing matters.
      Gazidis took these matters out of AW’s hands at the beginning of January 2017, according to kronkie, Wenger and gazidis, with the three wise men assuming their new roles in February of the same year.

      Huss Fahmy and Vinai are still here, the latter in an even more important role than before and Sanilehi departing under a cloud only fairly recently.
      So I don’t think we can say that those responsible for players salaries and contracts have left the club as yet.

      We have signed two youngsters today, OmarRekik (18) from Hertha Berlin for around 1,000,000 euros and Nikolaj Moller (18) from Malmo for around 500,000 euros.

      Diego Simeone is furious with The Arsenal and it is reported he was shouting “i’m going to destroy Arsenal. I am going to get their cannon and shove it up their a**e!!!”

      Both of these are being reported on Twitter.
