Arsenal allegedly turned down an unexpected late transfer offer from Paris Saint-Germain for Sokratis Papastathopoulos.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos has not been the most persuading perfomer in his time at the Emirates Stadium, however he recently looked strong at previous club Borussia Dortmund.
The Greece international may well have been a valuable choice for PSG due to the more slow movement of the game in Ligue 1, but it’s still to some degree astounding to see this connection appear.
The Gunners may even now have a role for Sokratis Papastathopoulos in their first-team this season as they chose to keep the centre-back, however it’s difficult to see him getting a very remarkable look ahead of any semblance of David Luiz, Rob Holding and summer signing Gabriel Magalhaes.
Paris Saint-Germain had a really quiet summer overall, and could maybe have profited by defensive cover subsequent to losing long-serving club skipper Thiago Silva on a free transfer to Chelsea.
