Ian Wright Reveals Why £17.6m Arsenal New Signing Will Flop

Unai Emery bolstered his backline with the arrival of pair: Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner, this summer.
.
Arsenal, last season were completely vulnerable in their defence and recorded one of the worst records away among the Premier League’s top ten.
.
The Gunners struggled to hold out against rivals away from home, contrasting a better home record, last season.
.
And Emery’s appointment after Wenger’s departure would ensure the quick fix of wrecked defence.
But former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has questioned the arrival of Sokratis Papastathopoulos to the Emirates.
.
The Greek international may have boasted a solid record in the German Bundesliga with former Klopp side Borussia Dortmund, but Wright is unconvinced he can meet the complex challenges of the Premier League.
.
The 6ft 1 towering guard who joined Arsenal from Dortmund for a reported fee of 17.6 million pounds was once been hailed for his defensive work on the field by former teammate now Bayern Munich defender Mat Hummels.
.
On January 2017, he was given plaudits as one of the best defenders in the Bundesliga by German magazine Kicker.
.
The Greek international finished joint-third in the Europe’s top-five league, for highest tackle success rate in 2014-15 Bundesliga season, winning 92.59 percent of his tackles.
