Bayer Leverkusen are in talks with Arsenal fullback Sead Kolasinac.

The defender is available from the Gunners this summer and has already rejected an approach from West Ham.

A return to Schalke has been mooted, though BILD says Bayer have held ‘positive’ talks with Kolasinac’s camp.

Arsenal are willing to sell for a knockdown €10m, though meeting the player’s terms will still prove steep for Bayer.

However, they hope to convince Kolasinac to take a cut on his €9m salary by offering him a long-term contract.
