Arsenal full back Sead Kolasinac is discussing a loan move back to Schalke in Germany.
The 27-year old saw a move to Bayer Leverkusen fall through earlier this year but is hopeful of completing a return to the Bundesliga with Schalke, the side he left in 2017 ahead of joining Arsenal.
Kolasinac has found his opportunities at the Emirates limited this season due to the form of Kieran Tierney.

The Scottish-full back signed from Celtic in the summer of 2019, but had an injury plagued first season with the club.
But the 23-year-old has well and truly found his place in the Arsenal starting line-up now, with Kolasinac only making one appearance in the Premier League so far this season.
Kolasinac has made 78 appearances and scored twice for Arsenal since his free transfer from Schalke.
The Bosnian international has 18 months left on his deal at the Gunners, and a full transfer away from the club is expected in the summer due to his lack of game-time.

Arsenal have a number of contracts up at the end of the coming season including Mesut Ozil, Sokratis, Shkodran Mustafa and David Luiz.
Kolasinac was included in the Bundesliga team of the season before his move to Arsenal and Schalke will hope he can find some of his old form from his first stint at the club.
The Bundesliga side have made a terrible start to the season and sit bottom of the table.
