Ligue 1 giant made deadline day push for unwanted Arsenal defender

According to reports in France, Ligue 1 champion Paris Saint-Germain made a late attempt to sign Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, but failed to strike a deal with the Gunners for the Greece international.

Arsenal defender, Sokratis has fallen down the defensive pecking order at the Emirates Stadium following the appointment of new manager Mikel Arteta, with Arsenal open to the idea of letting the 32-year-old leave the club this summer.

According to news outlets in France, Paris Saint-germian coach, Thomas Tuchel requested PSG look into the possibility of signing Sokratis after the German coach worked with the player during his time at Borussia Dortmund.

PSG proposed a free transfer of the player, whose contract at Arsenal will expire next summer, but that proposal was turned down by Arsenal.
