Arsenal sealed the signing of Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free move to kick start the transfer activity under the management of new boss Unai Emery.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Gunners are set to secure their second signing of the summer by luring Sokratis from German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.
According to Bild, the Greek international’s move to Arsenal is as good as done. The German source have claimed that the fee is going to be worth €19million and the defender is going to double his wages and get around €5million-a-year (€96,000-a-week).

In the last campaign, the former Werder Bremen star played 30 league games for Dortmund and scored 2 goals. So far, he has made 79 appearances for the senior Greek national side and scored 3 goals.
At Arsenal, he is set to re-unite with his former BvB teammates like Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan, who moved to the Emirates in the winter transfer window.
