Manchester City left-back target signs for Arsenal on a five-year contract – City Watch

City Watch

One of Manchester City’s supposed left-back targets has decided his next club, with Schalke 04 star, Sead Kolašinac, signing a five-year deal with Premier League side Arsenal.

Reliable Schalke reporter Raphael Wiesweg has broken the news on Twitter that the 23-year-old Bosnian international, who becomes a free agent in the summer, has already put pen to paper on a move to the Emirates.

He 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.
