Sead Kolasinac: Bayer Leverkusen, Arsenal in talks over defender | Football News

Bayer Leverkusen remain in talks with Arsenal over a deal to sign defender Sead Kolasinac.

Sky in Germany report that Leverkusen have recently intensified their efforts to sign the Bosnia-Herzegovina international, who has fallen behind Kieran Tierney and Ainsley Maitland-Niles in Mikel Arteta’s plans.

The 27-year-old, previously linked with a move back to former club Schalke, was born in Germany and is thought to be keen to return to the Bundesliga for family reasons.

Kolasinac, who has made 107 appearances for Arsenal since joining on a free transfer from Schalke in 2017, was an unused substitute on Monday as the Gunners lost 3-1 to reigning Premier League champions Liverpool.
