Marseille want Kolasinac to leave 6 months after signing with Arsenal
Olympique de Marseille are reportedly keen for Sead Kolasinac to leave the club this summer less than six months after joining the Ligue 1 giants in the January transfer window from Arsenal.
According to Foot Mercato, Jorge Sampaoli wants Marseille to sell the Bosnian international this summer, with Kolasinac failing to impress the French side despite spending half a season with the club, with Kolasinac now set for a second transfer in 2022 .
Kolasinac signed an 18-month contract with Marseille in January, and despite making 14 appearances for the club, Sampaoli is now determined to ensure the former Arsenal defender leaves this summer after a series of lackluster performances.
One of Arsenal’s highest earners during his time at the £100,000,000-a-week club, Kolasinac joining Marseille was meant to usher in a new chapter in the defender’s career. However, the transfer has so far been nothing but a disaster.
Indeed, finding a suitor in Kolasinac could be difficult this summer given Arsenal’s difficulty in trying to offload the German-born left-back, with the Gunners struggling to sell the 28-year-old over the course of several years. windows before finding a buyer in Marseille.
Kolasinac must leave Marseille after a turbulent 21/22 campaign
Kolasinac’s career has stalled somewhat in recent seasons after becoming a divisive figure at Arsenal and then watching his move to Marseille catch fire. And this summer, the Bosnian international must leave France for good and make sure to find a club where he can start fresh.
