JUST IN: Arsenal on the verge £13m defender deal - "Player wants to join Arsenal"


Arsenal are reportedly set to complete the signing of Borussia Dortmund centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos this summer, according to reports.

The North London club are said to be keen on making the Greek defender their first signing of the summer under Unai Emery, despite late competition from rivals Manchester United.

According to report from The Telegraph, the tabloid claimed the Gunners initially offered a fee of £13m for Sokratis, before returning with an improved £16m bid that should be enough to complete the transfer.

The player could arrive the club in the coming days, making him the third player with Dortmund players to arrive at the Emirates Stadium since former BVB chief Sven Mislintat joined last year.

The Telegraph also adds that the club intend to bring in at least one more defensive player before the summer market closes for business.
