Lazio eye 27 year-old Gunner for summer move

Lazio are eyeing a move to sign Sead Kolasinac from Arsenal this summer.

The defender has spent 2021 on loan with Schalke in the Bundesliga, returning to his former side to play regular first-team football.

A permanent switch there appears unlikely however, with S04 already confirmed to be dropping out of the top tier of German football, meaning their budgets will need to be trimmed.

Fellow defender Shkodran Mustafi also joined the club in the winter, after the Gunners agreed to cut his contract short, but having only been signed on a temporary deal, he also looks likely to be leaving this summer.

Gazzetta claims that Lazio are keen on the Serbian defender however, and name Kolas versatility to play on the left-midfield and as a centre-back can also boost their squad.

Marc Oliver Kempf is also claimed to be on their shortlist, with both players having just one year remaining on their contracts come the summer.

Arsenal are also believed to be on the lookout for a new option at left-back in the coming window, which will likely confirm the future of Kolasinac as away from North London.

Does anyone believe Kola could play for us next season depending on our window?

    Kolasinac is finished with us, whatever happens to our transfer window budget. What is the point of keeping a back up defender who cannot defend and holds the record for the number of back passes in a game when he does get forward.
    I’ve got more chance of playing for Arsenal next season than he has.

    I don’t think he could be brought back into the fold considering his underwhelming performances at the club and what transpired in Schalke upon his and Mustafi’s arrival…problematic character, albeit it was intriguing to see him wearing the captain’s armband almost immediately…very unusual to say the least

    If they pay a fair transfer fee, we obviously can do without Sead. It is not a charity club.

      And Lazio are not that poor.
