Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Premier League giants, Arsenal are in talks to make Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos their first signing of the post-Arsene Wenger era.
The 29-year-old is thought to be available for a fee in the region of £15million after failing to agree terms over a new contract at the Bundesliga club.
The Gunners are in the market for at least one centre-back this summer as their head of recruitment Sven Mislintat and head of football relations Raul Sanllehi lead an overhaul of the squad.
Mislintat has already proved an influential figure in signing Konstantinos Mavropanos and, having previously worked at Dortmund, he was central to Arsenal’s £56m capture of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
