Arsenal opened their summer transfer business on Tuesday when it was confirmed that full-back Sead Kolasinac had arrived at the Emirates Stadium on a free transfer from Schalke 04.
Kolasinac, 23, made over 120 first-team appearances for Schalke between 2012 and 2017, whilst he has earned 18 caps for Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The arrival of an exciting left-back should have been greeted with joy, but Arsenal supporters were more concerned about the potential signing of AS Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe.
It has been reported that Arsenal have made a world-record move for the 18-year-old, who is also said to be interesting the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid.
It would be some capture if head coach Arsene Wenger could convince the teenager to make the move to the Emirates Stadium, although it does appear that deal is still a long way off.
When Kolasinac was pictured in an Arsenal shirt on the club’s official Twiter account, it would be fair to say that the excitement was muted as the club’s supporters called for Mbappe to arrive.
