There are very few Arsenal fans that haven’t been impressed with the Greek defender Sokratis this season. He may be a bit aggressive sometimes, but he is desperate to win at all costs in every single game he plays in. So how would you like to see his partner in the Greece national team to join him in the Arsenal defence?
According to Calciomercato the Gunners are challenging Juventus to bring Kostas Manolas in from Roma to join his countryman at the Emirates. They report: “…. Both Premier League giants Arsenal and Serie A champions Juventus on the trail of the talented defender.
Manolas has a release clause in his contract that both clubs are reportedly prepared to meet and it will be a matter of who makes the most convincing offer to the Greek star. On one hand, a move to Arsenal would see Manolas line up alongside international partner Sokratis and play a major role in Arsenal’s defence and likely playing many games.
At Juventus, however, Manolas may be forced into rotation more and would face a competitive starting line-up of defenders – and a new manager to contend with too.”
So that surely makes Arsenal favourites to sign the Greek international. If he is as committed as Sokratis, would you like to see him in the Arsenal defence?
