Schalke defender Sead Kolasinac has signed a five-year deal with Arsenal, according to reports in Germany.
The Bosnian who is set to become a free agent this summer has agreed a deal in principle to move to The Emirates this summer.
Kolasinac has been linked with Arsene Wenger’s side for some time, though talk of a deal has dried up in recent days.
According to German journalist, Raphael Wiesweg, the 23 year-old is set to leave Schalke for North London in the coming weeks.

Kolasinac has earned himself a reputation for being an assists machine in Germany – he’s notched up nine in all competitions this season.
The defender is in line to replace either Kieran Gibbs or Nacho Monreal. Gibbs has been tipped to be heading for The Emirates exit this summer, with Newcastle and Brighton chasing the Englishman.
