Manchester City have been widely linked with a move for Schalke 04 left-back Sead Kolašinac, who is out-of-contract in the summer, however it appears he has completed a move to Arsenal.
It was reported by a reliable Schalke journalist on Saturday evening that Kolašinac had signed a 5-year deal with the Gunners and Sky Sports also report today that a deal is done.
The move will be completed on July 1st after his contract expires, he will then sign for Arsenal on a free transfer:

The 23-year-old defender was also linked with a move to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, but local reporters said City were merely ‘monitoring’ the player and no offer had been made, contrary to claims from Germany.
According to multiple reports from across Europe, City are currently attempting to lure Juventus left-back Alex Sandro to the Etihad, but that won’t be an easy task. Benjamin Mendy of Monaco, Valencia flyer José Luis Gayà, and Southampton’s England international Ryan Bertrand are three other names doing the rounds, with City certain to sign at least one left-back in the summer.
