Napoli, Lazio submit proposals to Sead Kolasinac

Napoli and Lazio have submitted proposals to Sead Kolasinac for a summer transfer, with Arsenal looking for €4m to sell.

Daniele Longo of Calciomercato reports that Sead Kolasinac is not in Arsenal’s plans for next season, and he’s currently looking over his options for a transfer. Among those options are two recent proposals made to him by Napoli and Lazio.

Longo adds that Arsenal will let Kolasinac leave for €4m (£3.4m) this summer.

Chris Wheatley highlights that he first reported on Lazio’s interest last month, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Serie A side firming it up now. Napoli have also been linked with a move in the past, after Schalke pulled out of the race.

The 27-year-old moved to Schalke on loan in January, making 18 appearances and regularly captaining the side. But as keen as they were to bring him back, they just couldn’t afford it after their relegation to the German second division.

Instead, it seems Kolasinac’s most likely destination is Italy. He clearly isn’t under consideration for a role in Mikel Arteta’s squad next season, so the sooner Arsenal can bring in a bit of money for him and get his wage off the bill, the better.
