Sokratis Papasthatopoulos’ move to Arsenal has been announced by Borussia Dortmund Sporting Director Michael Zorc, according to Sky Sports. In fact, the German club have already secured a potential long-term replacement by signing 22-year-old French centre-back Abdou Diallo from Mainz.

Earlier reports claimed the two clubs had come near an agreement for a fee of around £16million.

The long-awaited, likely arrival of the Greece international will be another part of the defensive overhaul the newly appointed manager Unai Emery is currently undergoing at the Emirates, and amid all the glamour of the World Cup in full swing at the moment this is a refreshing piece of news for Arsenal fans.

According to the Telegraph, Arsenal are set to launch a £35million for highly-rated young Freiburg centre-back Caglar Soyuncu, despite the fact that the club has not yet named a successor to long-serving boss Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners have reportedly interviewed a number of candidates for the job and have made their decision on Wenger’s successor. However, none of the prospective candidates were asked about Soyuncu.

Soyuncu is a highly-rated 21-year-old Turkish international, who has reportedly attracted interest from Premier League clubs and also German giants Bayern Munich.

Arsenal’s pursuit for Freiburg’s Matthias Ginter looks to be over after the player himself has stated his desire to play for Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund rather than any other club.

“It would be nice if we could resolve this issue now. I would like that to happen before our first World Cup game. If I am going to move, then it will only be to Dortmund. I was always a Dortmund fan and the environment and fans there are great. It’s therefore not difficult for me to say I want to play for Dortmund.”

Arsenal have reportedly been in the market for German U21 international Matthias Ginter before, but it does appear they are renewing their interest in the Freiburg player.

According to The Sun, Arsenal are close to sealing a deal to sign the 19-year old centre-back. After the side loaned out Francis Coquelin to Freiburg, it was expected that the German league side would sell Ginter as per the arrangement. However, he’s yet to leave, but could be on his way to the Emirates soon.

Last season, Ginter made 23 Bundesliga appearances, scoring once. The 6 foot 1 German can also play as a midfielder.

Arsenal Targeting Freiburg Midfielder Matthias Ginter 0

Versatile German U21 international Matthias Ginter is reported to have attracted the interest of Arsenal this summer. His asking price is said to be around £5M.

The 19-year old, who plays for German Bundesliga side Freiburg, can be utilised as a defender and midfielder. He made 23 Bundesliga appearances this season – scoring once.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger regards Ginter as a promising young player, who could eventually fill a void as a holding-midfielder. After sending his own young defensive midfielder, Francis Conquelin, on a season-long loan to the German side, Wenger is hoping Freiburg will consider offers for the 19-year old.
