Arsenal is on the verge of making first signing after Wenger’s exit as Arteta prepares to take over…


Arsenal are in talks to make
Borussia Dortmund defender, Sokratis Papastathopoulos their first signing of
the post-Arsene Wenger era.
The 29-year-old is thought to
be available for a fee in the region of £15million after failing to agree terms
over a new contract at the Bundesliga club.

for at least one centre-back this summer as their head of recruitment Sven
Mislintat and head of football relations Raul Sanllehi lead an overhaul of the

He looks set to raid his former
club again with negotiations ongoing over Papastathopoulos, who is thought to
have attracted interest from other clubs in Italy and England.

deal is imminent but it is understood nothing is finalised at this stage,
however, and Arsenal’s incoming manager is likely to be consulted before any
agreement is reached.

Arteta, who is currently an
assistant coach at Manchester City, is believed to be in advanced negotiations
with the North London side.
