As Arsenal are preoccupied with finding a new manager, the club is close to making their first singing in the post-Wenger era. According to multiple reports from Germany and England over the last few days, Sokratis Papastathopoulos is nearing a move to the England capital. The reports were further confirmed by Italian reporter Gianluca Di Marzio.
Di Marzio stated “The first buy in the post-Wenger era will be Papastathopoulos of Dortmund as the clubs are under advanced negotiations. The case is very close to being a done deal.”
The Greek center-back has a contract with Dortmund through 2019 but is expected to leave the club this offseason. If Arsenal proceed with signing Sokratis, it will be their second Greek player on the roster as Dinos Mavropanos also plays for the Gunners after making a move from PAS Giannina during the winter transfer window.
