The 2020 English F.A Cup champions, Arsenal, are set to sell Greek defender, Papastathopoulos Sokratis to Napoli as the club is set to sign Lille defender, Gabriel Magalhaes.
Altthough the negotiations with Lille defender Gabriel is still up in the air, but The Daily Mail have indicated that Arsenal have beaten both Man United and Napoli to his signature.
Mikel Arteta still needs to strengthen in other areas so that means a defender may have to make way to free up a wage, so this report about Napoli and Sokratis is perfectly timed.
Even as Sokratis has only one more year of contract with Arsenal and is thinking about a new experience.
The Greek defender is perfectly fine but the arrival of Gabriel and return of William Saliba will reduce his opportunities, so this could work out brilliantly for him and Arsenal.
