Liverpool, along with Manchester City and Arsenal, have reportedly offered a contract to Schalke’s Sead Kolasinac, according to Bild.
The 23-year-old Bosnian is out of contract in the summer and his club can do nothing to keep the Bosnian if he wishes to leave.
We actually had Kolasinac down as a feisty, brutish left-back – who prides himself on his defensive attributes first and foremost.
But according to the Echo, he’s averaged a goal or an assist every 206 minutes this season – which of all the defenders in Europe’s top five leagues – is only bettered by the world’s best attacking left-back Marcelo.
The Brazilian has seven assists and two goals, while Kolasinac is on three goals and five assists (although he has played some fixtures in a more advanced left-midfield role).
If we can acquire him on a free transfer, it would be a fantastic start to our summer business. We badly need competition for James Milner in this role and Kolasinac is a serious upgrade on Alberto Moreno.
What’s more, we could sign Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon as well. The 16-year-old wonderkid has six goals in the Championship this term and is a target as well, according to the Daily Mail.
