Sead Kolašinac (German pronunciation: , Bosnian pronunciation: ; born 20 June 1993) is a Bosnian professional footballer who plays as a left back for English Premier League club Arsenal and for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team.

Kolašinac began his career in his hometown club, Karlsruher SC. After eight years of playing for Kalsruhe, Kolašinac joined 1899 Hoffenheim, where he played a season, afterwards being bought by VfB Stuttgart. Kolašinac's stay at Stuttgart was short-lived, and a season later, he joined Schalke 04.

Kolašinac is regarded as a defensive all-rounder which means that he can be deployed in multiple defensive positions. In Kolašinac's Schalke 04 II career, he was deployed mostly as a centre back or defensive midfielder. Schalke head coach Jens Keller has primarily deployed Kolašinac as a left full-back; a playing position in which Kolašinac has received praise. Kolašinac is deemed to be physically strong and tough in his physique, clever defensively on the pitch and defensively consistent in winning one-on-one duels against his opponents.

Kolašinac was born in Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg, to Bosniak parents. His father, Faik, works at a Mercedes-Benz factory. Faik was born in Nikšić, SR Montenegro, to parents from Plav, SR Montenegro; the family moved to Čapljina, SR Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1969, where Faik met his wife. Kolašinac and his family are practising Muslims.

As well as having a German passport Kolašinac was given a Bosnian passport in 2013 and decided to play for the Bosnian national team.
