Sokratis reportedly can choose between Italy and Turkey

The main aim of Mikel Arteta and Edu this month is to reduce the bloated Arsenal squad after failing to offload much of our deadwood during the short summer window.

The Gunners have already released Sead Kolasinac to Schalke after he only started one Premier League game this season, and of course William Saliba has been taken up by nice back in his homeland.

Now it looks like the third defender to leave the Emirates will be the big Greek Sokratis, who wasn’t even registered to play for Arsenal in the EPL, so he simply has to leave to get to play any football at all.

It has been reported by the Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano that Sokratis has got a choice between moving to Italy or Turkey, and he revealed the news in this tweet…

It will certainly be good to get yet another wasted wage bill off our books. Let’s hope we see even more of the deadwood depart before the end of the month!

      I agree with your list that need to go.

      If it happens, it would be a Happy New Year.

      Let us hope for all us gooners.

      I would add Xhaka to that list.

    Business getting down very quickly so far. Edu atoning for last summer. Ozil looks set to move to Istanbul now with Arsenal still paying his wages for the rest of the season, although I’d imagine much less than his current salary. Move Mustafi on and that’ll be somewhere around £400k saved for the rest of the season. Some quick maths puts that as a saving of £9.6m.

    Now, if only Norwich could stop taking the p*ss with their valuation of Buendía…

      I think if Ozil leaves, and it’s a very big if, he will be off to the MLS.

        Events have happened since your post Declan. Looks like Turkey for old lazybones!

    Socrates always gave 100% when he played for Afc so good luck to him where ever he goes.

    1. Arsenal2win says:

      @Stan Adams, you are a truthful Gunner. Even if his best wasn’t always enough, he gave it all. God bless u buddy.

    2. jon fox says:

      Stan, And guess what, our club always paid him 100% of his large wages too and so good luck to US in getting rid of him!

  4. Sue says:

    Apparently Genoa are interested in Mustafi too.
    Macey to Hibs?
    Ozil…. it’s all happening..

    1. gooner4life says:

      Happy days!!!!

  5. Goonster says:

    What a window this is turning out to be. Apart from the Saliba transfer I am really so happy about the outgoings.

  6. jon fox says:

    Ah yes! Sokratis. I still remember him! How can I ever forget him! Anyone who CAN offer help in helping me forget, please contact me urgently, as remembering his “perfs” still gives me nightmares!
    One of the infamous “three clowns” almost down now it seems, two more to go.
