Arsenal could turn to Sead Kolasinac to solve their problem left-back position.

According to a report in Metro Arsene Wenger could put a bid in for the 23-year-old Schalke 04 defender.

Kolasinac has been in outstanding form for Schalke and is in no rush to quit the side that he has spent his entire career with.

German clubs are increasingly concerned about the spending power of English teams and are almost powerless to compete against the wages on offer.

Wenger is in no rush to offer a new contract to Kieran Gibbs who has been sharing left-back duties with Nacho Monreal.

At 23-years-of-age Kolasinac could hold down the position for years to come with Wenger aware of interest from Juventus as he weighs up whether to put in a bid for the Bosnian internationalist.

With Schalke sitting in mid-table the prospect of regular Champions League football and a hefty pay rise could convince Kolasinac to move to London.
