Arsenal have announced that Schalke left-back Sead Kolasinac will join the club this summer – and fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight.

The club posted a confirmation of the defender’s free transfer on their official Twitter on Tuesday morning as it was trumpeted that Kolasinac “is a Gunner”.

The 23-year-old Bosnia-Herzegovina international is Arsenal’s first official signing of the summer transfer window, and is set to head to the Emirates on July 1 when his deal at Schalke expires.

Many fans noted that their new left-back could potentially push 27-year-old Kieran Gibbs out of the squad and others pointed out that he represented excellent business given that Arsenal are only shelling out for his wages and no transfer fee.

This is Futbol has rounded up some of the best Twitter reactions:

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has still not dipped into the club’s huge transfer kitty and there is a growing expectation that he will want to strengthen the side after a mixed 2016-17 season.

Arsenal finished outside the top four for the first time during the Frenchman’s reign at the club although they ended the campaign on a high with a memorable third FA Cup triumph in four years.
