Arsenal are set to sign Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos this summer, according to reports.

The Greek international has just 12 months remaining on his current deal with the Bundesliga giants.

And according to German newspaper Bild, the 29-year-old is likely to head to the Emirates this summer.

They say Arsenal are willing to hand Papastathopoulos a two-year contract to join the Gunners.

Bild add that Dortmund will sell the defender for around £17.5m (€20m), with the German side already eyeing a replacement.

Mainz ace Abdou Diallo tops their transfer wishlist, with Dortmund readying a £22m (€25m) bid for the defender.

The Gunners are already making moves in the transfer market, despite not having a manager.

Arsene Wenger took charge of his final game last weekend, as Arsenal beat Huddersfield 1-0.

Ex-Arsenal ace Unai Emeryis the favourite to replace Wenger at the Emirates this summer.

Arsenal chief scout Sven Mislintat is reportedly the driving force behind the Gunners’ transfer business until a new manager is appointed in the coming weeks.

Express Sport understands that Arsenal chiefs are desperate to appoint Wenger’s successor before the World Cup starts next month.
