Reports: Arsenal close to completing the signing of Sokratis Papastathopoulos

Reports today suggest that Arsenal are on the brink of signing Sokratis Papastathopoulos from BorussiaDortmund.
The Greek international has been strongly linked for a few weeks now, and according to Jack Pitt Brooke in the Independent – backed up by the ever reliable David Ornstein – it seems the deal is on the verge of completion.
A fee of around £16m is being mentioned as sufficient to sign the 29 year old who will be 30 in June but until then remains 29, that’s how it works.
He’ll help add experience to an Arsenal defence that no longer contains the retired Per Mertesacker, and has Laurent Koscielny sidelined until well into the new campaign with an Achilles injury.
It’s a return to his former club for Sven Mislintat who, since his appointment in November, has helped bring in two other players with links to the Bundesliga side.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were teammates there was well as now in North London, but let’s hope that the German can demonstrate a wider reach with some of the other signings we make this summer.
