Falk states this will see Kolasinac take a significant pay cut from his Arsenal earnings, which isn’t too surprising as he’s been a bit of a disappointment in his time at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal fans won’t be too bothered about seeing him leave now, and this loan could be a good opportunity to put him in the shop window ahead of a potential summer sale.
