Liverpool emerge as potential suitors for released Arsenal star

Liverpool are claimed to be eyeing a deal to sign Sokratis this month, a player who has just agreed to part ways with Arsenal.

The Gunners agreed a deal with the defender to terminate his contract, allowing him to go in search of a new club.

Reports had claimed that a move to Italy was on the cards, but he is now believed to have become an option for Liverpool. Sokratis played under manager Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund previously, and a reunion could well be on the cards with the DailyMail claiming that contact has been made between the parties.

The Reds have endured increasingly worrying issues at the back this term, with midfielders Fabinho and Jordan Henderson both filling in deeper roles in order to accommodate their problems, but their form has suffered.

They were dumped out of the FA Cup by Manchester United yesterday, conceding three times in the process, and have actually gone five Premier League matches without a win.

Their drop in form has seen them relinquish top spot in the table, and their defence of their title is now in doubt as they look set to drop out of the top four if they continue on their winless run, and with only a week left to make signings they may decide on Sokratis.

The Greek international already has Premier League experience, and a relationship with the manager to fall back on, but Arsenal may well regret their decision to exile their former star if he was to help a rival this season.

    PATRICK, FIRSTLY, HOW ARE LIVERPOOL RIVALS OF US THIS YEAR? Secondly, “if he was to help a rival” surely means you have not been watching the lamentable Wrestler Sokratis’s desperate and failed attempts to play football in any way that will help ANY Prem team!

    I will be laughing my head off in shock if this joke of a footballer ends up under Klopp. It must be VERY unlikely! Ideally, he would go to SPUDS AND HELP RUIN THEM!

    And now it appears that arsenal are going to cancel mustafi 90k a week contract. He has like 2M left. Let’s bet they will again pay him like 1M or more to release him… (Even if we can say it frees space and money, it is still giving 1M for a player you don’t have anymore)… Honestly could not we have sell him last summer ???! Even selling him for free would have saved one year of salary, 4M ! Lot of mistakes in the last year…
