ARSENE WENGER will turn to Greek centre back Sokratis Papastathopoulos to bolster Arsenal’s defence this summer, according to reports.
But, according to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, Arsenal are favourites for the 29-year-old.
Wenger is looking to provide more stability in Arsenal’s defence.
He has regularly impressed in his 25 appearances for Dortmund this season and could be just what Wenger requires.
Arsenal have conceded 41 Premier League goals this season, with only Leicester City conceding more of the teams in the top eight.
Arsenal have had a better season in Europe though.
A 4-1 Europa League quarter-final first-leg victory over CSKA Moscow means the north Londoners have one foot in the last four.
