Photo: New Arsenal signing watching his team’s final game
New Arsenal acquisition Sead Kolasinac made the effort to watch his current teammates in action one last time on Saturday before his move to England.
The 23-year-old has been one of Schalke’s best performers this season, contributing heavily in their Europa League run which ended against Ajax at the quarterfinal stage.
If Arsenal are signing Sead Kolasinac, they are getting an absolute workhorse. Committed, combative. Arguably Schalke's best this term.

Kolasinac’s refusal to extend his contract means he will be a free agent after this campaign and the club who have won the battle for his signature has been proven by many sources to be Arsenal.
The full-back was suspended for Schalke’s final game of the Bundesliga season against Ingolstadt on Saturday but he made an appearance in the stands as his side drew 1-1.
With his move to Arsenal expected to be completed on July 1, Kolasinac will now have over a month to prepare for life at the Emirates stadium.
