Report: Arsenal ready to sell Sokratis Papastathopoulous at cut-price £3.5 million

It is no surprise to see that Arsenal could be willing to let Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulous leave The Emirates this summer. 

The versatile defender has found himself surplus to requirements across the back-line with Arsenal’s most recent additions. 

With that in mind, there has been plenty of interest in his signature doing the rounds in the transfer gossip and rumour columns. 

Now, the price-tag Arsenal are willing to accept for the player has also come into focus.

According to The Mirror, Arsenal want just £3.5 million for the 32-year-old as he has just one year left on his contract in North London. 

 

His departure would be as part of a major cleanout from Arsenal, as they look to raise funds for further transfer business this summer. 

It is a significant decrease, around £14 million, on the reported (Guardian) £17.6 million Arsenal paid for the Greek star just two years ago, when he became Unai Emery’s third signing as Arsenal boss. 

But that was always the risk when signing a player of Sokratis’ age and Arsenal will likely consider his contribution to the club worthy of that initial fee, especially if they can make something back with his sale this summer.
