Arsenal open talks with Schalke defender

Arsenal have opened talks with Schalke defender, Sead Kolasinac according to the Daily Mail. 

The 23-year-old Bosnian international has been subject to interest from multiple clubs as his contract with Schalke 04 runs out this summer. Kolasinac was subject to a £5.3 million bid from Chelsea in January, while Juventus, Man City and Liverpool have also shown interest in the fullback. 

Arsenal scouts attended a club meeting last week to report on potential summer targets for the club. Although Man City had been deemed favourites for his signature, it appears Arsenal have taken the lead in the race to sign the defender.
