Arsenal risk losing Kolasinac as Barcelona plot £20m transfer for left-back
BARCELONA are reported to have shortlisted Arsenal star Sead Kolasinac in their transfer targets this summer.
The Spanish champs are desperate for some competition down the left side for regular full-back/wing-back Jordi Alba.
And despite a stop-start season at the Emirates, Mundo Deportivo is reporting that Kolasinac is under consideration for a £20million bid.
But there are another SEVEN left-backs under the microscope in what is sure to be a busy summer at Nou Camp.
As well as player ins and outs, there is still speculation that manager Ernesto Valverde could be set for the chop.
So whether the list of eight left-backs stays remains to be seen.
EIGHT ON THE LIST
The other names on the list are Bayer Leverkusen’s Wendell, Borussia Dortmund’s Guerreiro, Real Betis’ Junior Firpo, Atletico Madrid’s Filipe Luis, Porto’s Alex Telles, PSG’s Juan Bernat and Celtic’s Kieran Tierney.
In April Kolasinac came out and declared his happiness at Arsenal amid rumours that Unai Emery will also move for a left-back this summer.
The Gunners have been linked with a number of left-backs including Tierney and Nicolas Tagliafico, but the Bosnian star is not fazed.
