Sead Kolasinac has earned 43 senior caps for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.

Jorge Sampaoli is a firm fan of Arsenal left-back and Marseille could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.

The former Schalke 04 man heavily relies on his ability to read the game. It is coupled with his sensible tackling and an excellent sense of positioning, allowing him to repel most of the danger in the defensive third.

According to the report, “Arsneal are likely to allow left back Sead Kolasinac to leave the club in January. The left-sided star has not featured regularly for manager Mikel Arteta this season. According to the Daily Mail, Kolasinac is surplus to requirements, and the club will allow him to leave on loan or permanently. The source suggests that Marseille are showing serious interest in the 28-year-old. A modest fee is likely to be enough to convince Arsenal to sell, as getting Kolasinac’s wages off their books may be the number one priority.”
