Sead Kolasinac became our first signing of the summer on Tuesday when he joined the club from Schalke and you can watch his first interview right here.

Sead, congratulations, you’re an Arsenal player. How does it feel?

It feels really good and I’m pleased to be here. I’m happy to have signed at Arsenal for five years and I’m really pleased.

What was it that attracted you to the club?

Arsenal has a huge tradition and I followed the club as a young boy, in the days of Jens Lehmann and Thierry Henry. Arsenal has always been a club that is well recognised in Europe and I’m pleased to be here.

What was it about Lehmann and Henry that you liked so much?

Jens Lehmann played at Schalke too, which is where I’ve come from. As a young kid, I followed his career and I always thought he was a good goalkeeper. I’ve been able to meet him and looking back, he was a really good goalkeeper.

What can you tell us about your playing style?

I think my main strength is my mentality. I’m a player who will try to help the team as well as I can. My strengths are my mentality.

You’ve played in a number of different positions. Where are you most comfortable?

There are different positions but I think left back is where I feel most comfortable. I can play as part of a three at the back too or further forward. I’m really flexible.
