At last the most unsecret Arsenal transfer of the summer is finally coming to fruition, as it has been confirmed by Sky that Sokratis Papastathopoulos is here for his medical.
Sky reported this morning…
Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos has arrived in the UK to finalise his transfer to Arsenal, according to Sky sources.
Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc confirmed last week that a deal for the Greece international was close and an official announcement of his signing is expected soon.
The 30-year-old, who has won 79 caps for his country, looks set to become Unai Emery’s third major signing of the summer.
So now we have Benrd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner and now Sokratis to give a much-needed boost to our defence. With Calum Chambers being given a new contract extension, do Arsenal still need to bring in any more defenders?
