Wanted Arsenal man has decided that he wants to stay

Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac has changed his mind about leaving the Emirates and he wants to fight for his future now, claims The Guardian.

The Bosnian has struggled to play for Arsenal recently after the club signed the likes of Kieran Tierney last summer.

He has been used sparingly by Mikel Arteta and now that the Gunners have signed more defenders, he will likely struggle to play.

He has been linked with a move away from the Emirates this summer with West Ham and Schalke 04 keen to take him on.

The Guardian is now reporting that the Bosnian has spoken with Arteta and he wants to remain at the club and fight for his future.

It claims that he knows he will be behind Tierney in the pecking order, but he is determined to play and earn a place in the team.

Nick Ames of The Guardian Tweeted: “Am told West Ham is not a likely destination for Sead Kolasinac as things stand. Player has had talks with Arteta & knows he’s behind Tierney, but wants to fight for his spot unless something significant changes #AFC”

Arsenal has several players that can cover for left-back including Bukayo Saka and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Kolasinac will hope that Arteta will consider him better than the alternative players who are not natural left-backs when Tierney is unavailable to play.

    I’m not going to knock Kolasinac
    Like it or not, players are signed on contracts for a certain number of years regardless of performance or suitability during the contract
    Kolasinac is exercising his right.
    Others are no different
    The power is not with the club so the contracts benefit the player but not both parties equally.

      This is now a familiar trend,, Another one who can’t get a squad number on any other top team and we pay him so much it makes no sense for him accept a transfer deal

      The fans have been sold cart horses and been told they are thouroughbreds and can win the derby

        SueP and akan, Kolasinac would have changed his mind as soon as his accountant explained, what he was currently on at Arsenal compared to the offers on the table. His wife then dragged him back to London Colney to train.

    Players are also seeing the positive revolution taking place at The Arsenal
    This is what we can call ” The process to something big”.

      These guys are not concerned about any revolution under Artetta
      They’re looking at the numbers and weighing up how to make the most of it,, they see cash

        That is what it looks like to me unfortunately

    We need get rid of some players, if we sign this GK we would have 19 players non-homegrown over 21, PL rules state we can only have 17 in a 25 man squad, so we need shot of 3 players if we want Partey, that could be 4 if we sign Aouar as well, Lucas, Kola, Sokratis, Mustafi or Ozil, so we have to reduce the numbers before we sign more players, so 4 out of that 5 & we know Ozil isn’t going anywhere

  4. GunneRay says:

    The fact so many players want to stay will no doubt scupper MA’s plans to strengthen. Buying out of the contract is an option I think but may not be financially viable!?

    1. Deano says:

      Loans will trim the squad, but this isn’t gonna bring in the money we need to sign 1 or 2 midfielders

  5. ozziegunner says:

    People at the Club are being paid big money to manage its financial and player assets, in accordance with the FA’s rules of home grown and foreign born players. How do they let it get to this stage?

    I think we should try to encourage him to leave sooner rather than later.He will I am sure depart when his affluent friend leaves at the end of this season.
