The Bosnian FA have confirmed that Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac has tested positive for Covid-19.

Kolasinac, 27, played the full 90 minutes of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s 3-1 defeat to the Netherlands on Sunday but must now enter a period of self-isolation, meaning he will miss the side’s Nations League clash with Italy this evening.

Konyaspor goalkeeper Ibrahim Sehic has also been ruled out of the match after a positive test.

‘The results of that test have just arrived which show that our defender is positive for the coronavirus,’ a short statement read.

Bosnia head coach Dusan Bajevic will also be without Edin Dzeko, Ermedin Demirovic, Ermina Bicakcia, Asmir Begovic, Muhamed Besic, Elvira koljic, Toni Sunjic, Anela Ahmedhodzica, Amir Hadjiahmetovic in Sarajevo.

Kolasinac will therefore miss Arsenal’s trip to Leeds this weekend and Mikel Arteta looks set to be without the left-back for the side’s following matches with Molde and Wolves.

He becomes the second player in as many days to test positive for coronavirus after Mohamed Elneny was ruled out of Egypt’s clash with Togo last night.

Elneny arrived in Togo with the rest of his team-mates but played no part in his country’s 3-1 win and, like Kolasinac, must self-isolate for a fortnight.
