With numerous reports suggesting that Arsenal have made an agreement in principle to sign Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer in the summer, a latest development featuring an Arsenal midfielder gave ardent Gooners fans further room for optimism concerning the club’s chances of landing the coveted Schalke defender.
Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka recently made a bit of a furore on social media when he started following Kolasinac on Instagram. While the development does seem trivial, the fact that Xhaka has started following Kolasinac in the midst of the club’s public pursuit of Kolasinac has inevitably raised eyebrows among many Arsenal fans.
Many took Xhaka’s activity as a confirmation of Kolasinac’s transfer to Arsenal. With the Bosnia international recently been linked to Manchester City and AC Milan, the development will no doubt come as a welcome relief to the Arsenal faithful.
