According to Sky Sources, Kolasinac will be joining Arsenal on July 1st when his contract with Schalke expires.
The Bosnian left-back has caught the eye of a number of top clubs in Europe this season with his impressive performances in the Bundesliga.
Kolasinac can play in the orthodox left-back role or as a wing-back further up the pitch and seeing as Arsenal are alternating between the two formations currently, he makes a smart addition to the squad.
His arrival will raise questions about the futures of both Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs who are also vying for a starting role on the left side of the defence.
