Schalke defender Sead Kolasinac has dropped a huge hint that he’s set to move to the Emirates after following Arsenal on Instagram this evening.

Kolasinac is out of contract at the end of June and has been speaking with a number of clubs in recent months after failing to agree an extension with Schalke.

The Bosnian international has been strongly tipped to join Arsenal with Sky Sports News reporting earlier this month that the left-back had agreed personal terms over his move to north London.

The news outlet suggested that Kolasinac was due to become Arsene Wenger’s first signing of the summer window with the free transfer switch expected to be confirmed on July 1st.

However, the 23-year-old has now dropped a major hint that he’s on his way to the Emirates after following the official Arsenal Instagram page this evening.

Here is a screenshot:

In today’s high-tech age, a players social media actions are scrutinised and it’s always headline news when a player follows another club amid transfer speculation.

Obviously we shouldn’t get too overly-excited until Kolasinac is on Arsenal.com holding the famous Red & White shirt but it looks increasingly likely that he will complete his move any day now.

I think Kolasinac will prove to be an excellent signing, especially on a free transfer, as he was voted the best left-back in the Bundesliga last season and he has plenty of experience for his age.

His arrival is expected to lead to Kieran Gibbs leaving the club as he’s about to enter the final year of his deal and has failed to hold down a regular place.

Kolasinac is an attacking left-back so he should be a good fit in the left wing-back role that we adopted during the closing stages of the season while he’s also capable of playing at centre-back if required, so his versatility will be useful.
