L’Equipe: Arsenal have signed Sokratis Papastathopoulos

Russia World Cup 2018 countdown—7 DAYS

 

According to French outlet L’Equipe, Arsenal have secured the signing of Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Sokratis, an experienced 79-time capped Greek international, had been on the books of Dortmund since arriving at the club from fellow Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen in 2013.

Over the course of his 5-year stint at the Westfalenstadion, the no-nonsense stopper managed to establish himself an absolutely crucial figure, with the departure of Mats Hummels from the club in the summer of 2016 having since seen Sokratis step into a leader’s role on the pitch for BVB.

The 29-year-old racked up 43 appearances across all competitions this past season, notching 3 goals in the process, but looked some way short of his best over the last 6 months or so.
