AS Roma make Arsenal man a target to replace their departing star

Gazzetta claims that Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac is interesting AS Roma as they look for a replacement for the departing Aleksandar Kolarov.

Kolarov is close to sealing a move from the Italian side to Inter Milan as Antonio Conte continues to sign veterans.

The Serbian’s departure will bring the need for reinforcement on the left side of AS Roma.

The report names a few options for the Italians before claiming that Kolasinac has also emerged as one of their targets.

It claims that the Italians will look to exploit their good relationship with Arsenal to sign the Bosnian.

Mikel Arteta might have to sell some of his current players in this transfer window before making all the signings that he wants and Kolasinac isn’t untouchable.

The left-back has been pushed down the pecking order by the arrival and form of Kieran Tierney.

He was used as a left-centre back in his last few games, but Arsenal have Pablo Mari and they should complete the signing of Gabriel Magalhaes soon.

He has been linked with a return to Schalke 04 as well but it remains unclear if he will be one of the players that Mikel Arteta shows the exit door.

    We just let Mkhitaryan join Roma FOR FREE.

    Lol even United got 15m from Sanchez.

    Not selling Sanchez for 50-60m, getting Mkhi in return and now letting him go for free. That has to be the most idiotic transfer action this club has done?

    I really, really hope we have learned our lesson!

      I am still mad at Wenger for this blunder. Not only Arsenal lost 50-60M that City was prepared to pay, but also missed an opportunity to sign Mahrez who at that time was open to joining Arsenal.

    2. Phenom says:

      What if we sold Sanchez to city for 60m and came back to haunt us. We will all have come here to slate those who are in charge. (Remember Van persie sale). Arsenal fans are never satisfied.

      Do you think any of us here could go and do better under kroenke than what they are doing.

      1. McLovin says:

        Sanchez come back to haunt us? Lol back then we were not on City’s level, at all. Haunt or not, City still wiped the floor with us.

        And having having a player, who doesn’t want to extend, for his last season is just bad management.

      Sanchez was a free transfer to inter Milan mate, infact united payed him some good cash to terminate his contract

    4. ozziegunner says:

      McLovin, the word is that Mhikatarian’s agent paid Arsenal £1 million to buy out his remaining contract. One can argue that it wasn’t enough; however Mhikatarian was a free agent as he had paid out his contract.

  2. Trudeau says:

    Looks like Arsenal are finally getting serious about off-loading high wage earners. Another free perhaps?

    As an aside, for everyone criticising the owner, ask yourself this. Why would he continue stumping up huge transfer fees when we are showing ourselves pretty abject at selling assets?

    Hopefully s Guendouzi sale will help change the narrative.

    Lessons will be learned the hard way.Fortunately, the incompetents who were instrumental in signing these mediocre players are no longer with our Club.

      Well said Grandad

      Grandad, Whereas the absent owner with whom the buck stops, sat in his ranch thousands of miles away and LET those same incompetents waste our money by disastrous dealing.

      A more in touch and CARING owner, like Abramovitch, who is also living abroad but who CARES for his club, HAS NOT DONE SIMILARLY TO kROENKE.

      I do not absolve Kroenke of guilt. HE IS THE OWNER AND SHOULD HAVE SACKED GROSS INCOMPETENTS YEARS EARLIER BUT FAILED TO DO SO.

      1. SueP says:

        Was he aware they were incompetent?
        Sounds a silly question but it wouldn’t surprise me

      2. ozziegunner says:

        Totally agree jon; however one can understand why Kroenke has lost trust which will take time to restore.

  4. Grandad says:

    Very true Jon.
