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.
Shockingly, unbelievably, Neymar has tapped up Coutinho…. Again
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.
