Sokratis becomes the third new signing at Arsenal this summer after right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner and goalkeeper Bernd Leno joined earlier this summer as Unai Emery continues his overhaul of the Gunners’ back-line.

“The 30-year-old arrives from Borussia Dortmund, where he won two Bundesliga titles and one German Cup. The hugely-experienced defender lists Werder Bremen, AC Milan, Genoa and AEK Athens among his previous clubs.

“Sokratis, who will wear the number five shirt for us, also has vast experience on the international stage, making 79 appearances for Greece. This deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.”
