Timo Hildebrand has heaped praise on new Arsenal signing Sead Kolasinac as the full-back gets ready for his debut season at the Emirates stadium.

The 24-year-old joined the Gunners on a free transfer in June after choosing to leave Schalke for a new challenge in the Premier League.

Alexandre Lacazette has taken much of the spotlight away from fellow new addition Kolasinac in pre-season thus far.

However, Hildebrand, who once played with the Bosnian international insists he is ‘the perfect signing’ for Arsenal.

“He is so strong that nobody can stop him,” the former Germany international said

“He is really strong and also a fighter. He had those qualities even when he was a young player coming through the ranks at Schalke.

“He is a very good player and I think he is going to do well in the Premier League. He is the perfect signing for Arsenal.”
