Sokratis Papastathopoulos agrees Three-year deal with Arsenal


Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos is close to becoming Arsenal’s second signing of the summer after Stephan Lichsteiner of Juventus.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos’ father confirmed that the Greece international will sign a three-year deal with Arsenal for €20 million. He also revealed that Manchester United were interested.

“It’s for three years plus one, which Sokratis arranges to, I think,” he said.

“Arsenal had talked [with Papastathopoulos] two years ago, but I do not know why the deal did not work then. There was interest from Manchester United but for July, he had to wait until July for United.”

“United have a very good relationship with Dortmund, the teams speak a lot, but Sokratis chose to go to Arsenal. He is happy, he is in England at the moment.”
