When it was announced Arsenal would be going after Kieran Tierney, a bead of sweat probably started to trickle down Sead Kolašinac’s back.

The arrival of a young and promising left-back wasn’t the best of news for the defender, and it has proved to be case when the young Scot has been fit.

His game time has dwindled somewhat, especially this season, starting just once in the league so far, and an exit was even talked about late in the transfer window.

Bayer Leverkusen were reportedly keen, but their inability to sell Wendell saw the move fall through and Kolašinac stay at the Emirates.

With January already creeping up on us, however, an opening could take place for the defender in Italy, with AS Roma interested.

Their decision to sell Aleksandr Kolarov without bringing anyone else in has left them a bit short, and Corriere dello Sport explain they’ve been given the chance to make a move for the Arsenal man.

The Italian newspaper state ‘an intermediary recently offered’ the Bosnian to the Serie A club after he ‘lost his starting position in the club and is available to consider a transfer’.

With a lack of trustworthy options in the role, it’s said the operation ‘could be reasonable’, and Kolašinac would represent ‘a ready alternative to Spinazzola’, who hasn’t had the best of luck with injuries.

Something to keep an eye on, but if opportunities don’t present themselves to the former Schalke 04 man at Arsenal, this could be something he seriously considers if given the chance.
