Arsenal start clearout as Kolasinac is set to return to Schalke

Arsenal fans have been promised a very busy January transfer window for a change, and it looks like it is set to start immediately the window opens.

It is being reported by the Standard that Sead Kolasinac has already arranged to rejoin his old club Schalke04 on loan for the rest of the season.

This makes sense as Kolasinac has only started one EPL game for the Gunners this season, with Arteta preferring to use Kieran Tierney, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Bukayo Saka in his position when they are fit.

This will also free up a place in the Premier League and Europa League squads. Sead has played 7 games in the Europa League and League Cup games when we have wanted to give our first team stars a rest, and it is obvious that the Bosnian does not figure in Arteta’s plans for the future.

Mikel Arteta has already promised that he and Edu have prepared their plans for the transfer periods and it seems they are putting these plans into action quickly, hopefully moving a lot of our unused fringe players out to make room for any new choice arrivals they have chosen.

    Nice. That leaves us with Mustafi and Sokratis.

    Γ–zil I’ve given up hope.

      Hi McLovin, So who backs up Tierney?
      just asking.
      Some one from under 23s?
      I dont want Saka tied up in defence.

      1. OxInTheBox says:

        AMN

      2. Mike says:

        We have Joel Lopez, real prospect as a back up.

      3. Goonster says:

        I hear AMN is a versatile player. He can play multiple positions.😊

    2. jon fox says:

      Hope? Of what exactly? Of him leaving before June maybe ? If so, I have to tell you he will continue to take us for every last pound til the exact moment his contract expires. Such is the nature of the beast!

  2. Shortboygooner says:

    Well I hope we get a decent replacement. I dont think AMN is good enough in that position. I hope we get a bright young spark of someone from the academy to play second fiddle to KT.

    I feel bad for AMN because I dont think he has found his true roll and will end up like Milner at Liverpool. Not holding down a constant roll but being important to cover

    1. zamind says:

      Exactly, writers should always go into details like;
      Who will be the back up for Tierney. Surely not AMN and not at all Saka as we need him upfront.

      1. mungau says:

        very good comment as am also left with who is the potential back up for kt

    Medical today apparently… farewell my love ❀

    1. Kstix says:

      Haha, he’s not been your love for a while Sue. One could assume there was no love lost between you two for a while especially after his goal gift to Son in the Derby last season. He however started really well for us, I can only wonder where it went wrong for him. Perhaps, Sue you weren’t giving him enough love in the.. you knowπŸ€πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

      1. Sue says:

        🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣 good one, Kstix!!

    2. Sid says:

      If I may ask Madame, who is your new love in the team? Is it ESR?😁😁

      1. Sue says:

        ESR is too young, Sid πŸ˜„ Love him, just not in that way πŸ˜‚

        1. Sid says:

          Yeah. But right now I dont think anyone can replace Kola for you, Sue. Unless if we resign Giroud or get ZahaπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

          1. Sue says:

            Zaha – now you’re talking, Sid 😁

    Sead- loan to permanent
    Mustafi – loan to Free
    Papa – loan to Free
    Ozil – get half his wages gone then walk on a free come the summer
    Chambers, Nelson, Nketiah & Saliba – Short term loans, maybe permantly for Callum.

    We need a creative centre midfielder & promote the young man Bologun to replace Eddie as he is the better of the two imo. Maybe a LB too as Saka cant be dropped from RW to cover LB the form hes on but maybe someone from the Academy?

    There will be more outs (loans) than INs I’m guessing. Happy New Year everyone

    1. Sean says:

      Torreira still out on loan having a miserable time so he could be active in January plus Matteo is still ballin in Berlin, hope he gets to come back to Arsenal in the summer kids going to be a star!

  5. jon fox says:

    What will poor Sue do without her pin up boy! The most use he has been since signing was when chasing away those car muggers who attacked him and Ozil. A good fella clearly but a rotten player!
