Kolasinac has 'no future' at Arsenal and his contract may be paid off amid Arteta reveal - Campbell
Sead Kolasinac has no future at Arsenal and the club may pay off his contract if no offer arrives this summer.
That is the view of former Gunners and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the possibility of the 27-year-old returning to the Emirates next month.
Kolasinac has just over one year left on his contract in north London, having put pen to paper on a five-year deal upon his arrival from Schalke in June 2017.
The left-back returned to Schalke on loan this season, with the German club set to be relegated from the Bundesliga.
Arsenal paid off Mezut Ozil’s contract in January and the attacking midfielder joined Fenerbahce shortly after.
Speaking to Football.London on whether the club would need to pay off any more contracts this summer, manager Mikel Arteta said, “Hopefully we are not in that position anymore.”

Campbell is not convinced and suggested the club may need reach a settlement with Kolasinac.
“I think Arsenal may have to pay him off this summer,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“They got him out on loan this season and while that is one thing, he still has a year left. They might have to pay him off.
“If that is what they have to do, that is what they have to do. We cannot have a player there who is not going to play any part.
“You may as well bit the bullet and move on. Kolasinac was one of the clique. He doesn’t have a future at Arsenal.”
