​​Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac has brushed off speculation that the club are looking to sign a new left back in the summer transfer window, and said he was happy to be playing for the Gunners.


Kolasinac joined Arsenal at the start of the 2017/18 season, but has not really made his place at the left-back position permanent. Under new manager Unai Emery, however, the player has become the de facto wing back and has been used more as an attacking threat.


However, there have been rumours that the Gunners will be looking to sign a left-back before the start of the season, considering Nacho Monreal is closing to the age group where he will be more susceptible to injuries.



“I think you will always have that speculation, that happens at a club like this," he told ​Goal“I just look at us as a team at the moment and I want us to finish as positively as possible and I want to be a part of that. What happens in the summer, I don’t know But I’m very happy at Arsenal, I’m really pleased to be playing for a club like this.”


“I feel good,” he said. “At the start of the season I was injured and it was hard to come back when you have that sort of injury. But I’m 100 per cent now, I’m happy to help my team and to get a few assists as well.”


It remains to be seen if that will indeed be the case that Arsenal will get a new player or if they will persist with Monreal and Kolasinac for the new season and invest elsewhere.
