Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac from Schalke 04. The 23-year-old player had agreed in April to join the Gunners on expiration of his contract in Germany. The Gunners beat Juventus and Chelsea for his signature.
The player will join the rest of the team for pre-season training in July.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international, who can play at left-back, centre-back and in midfield, emerged as a key player for Schalke in recent seasons, featuring for the club in the Champions League and Europa League. He scored three goals in 25 Bundesliga appearances last term as Die Knappen finished a disappointing 10th in the table. He played for Germany at youth level before switching allegiance to Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2013.
