Sean Kolasinac is reportedly close to leaving Arsenal in a £9m deal, with Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen the strong favourites to sign the defender.

Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac is reportedly set to hold talks with Bayer Leverkusen later this week over a possible return to the Bundesliga.

Kolasinac has struggled to hold down a place in the side under Mikel Arteta, falling behind Kieran Tierney, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Bukayo Saka in the wing-back positions.

The 27-year-old has been given the green light to leave the Gunners and, according to Sport Bild, Leverkusen are leading the way to land his signature.

Arsenal technical director Edu is said to be hopeful of pocketing £9m for the Bosnia-Herzegovina international, ruling fellow German side Schalke 04 out of the running.

Kolasinac previously spent five years with Schalke before joining Arsenal, where he has made more than 100 appearances in all competitions since 2017.
