- Sead Kolasinac, former Arsenal player, has successfully completed his medical with Atalanta and is set to sign a two-year contract.
- Kolasinac, a Bosnian national player, brings substantial experience from his time at Arsenal and Marseille.
- Kolasinac turned 30 last month
This move marks the beginning of the Atalanta transfer moves, with Kolasinac expected to be a key figure in Coach Gasperini’s defensive strategy.
Born in 1993, Kolasinac is no stranger to international football, with 53 caps under his belt for the Bosnian national team.
His impressive performances for Bosnia included participation in the 2014 World Cup.
Kolasinac’s time at Arsenal was not what many had hoped and he left to join Marseille in 2022 on a free transfer. There, he made 41 appearances, including matches in Ligue 1, Coupe de France, and the Champions League.
He managed to score four goals and provide one assist in his last season with Marseille.
As Kolasinac prepares to sign the two-year contract with Atalanta, plus an option, he is set to leave Milan to head to the Atalanta headquarters.
His transition to Atalanta comes after his contract with Marseille expired. Once the contract is signed, Kolasinac will embark on his media activities before the official announcement.
With this move to Atalanta, Kolasinac looks to re-establish himself as a premier defender in one of the most competitive leagues in the world.
After his spell at Arsenal and a brief stint at Marseille, this opportunity presents a new challenge for the Bosnian, one he seems ready to take on.
