Napoli close to completing move for Arsenal defender

According to Italian outlet RAI,Arsenal center back Sokratis is set to join Napoli in a deal worth around €4.5m.
The Greek defender has been increasingly marginalised since Mikel Arteta took over, and after the restart barely played at all apart from a couple of die minutes substitute appearances – the last of which came in the FA Cup final on August 1st.
A popular figure around the club, he is one of the many centre-back especially Arsenal have collected, and the numbers mean some have to go.
He will join up with his former AC Milan teammate Gennaro Gattuso who is now Napoli manager.
Sokratis has made 69 appearances since his £16m move from Borussia Dortmund in 2018, scoring 6 goals and just one red card and winning 2 fa Cups with Arsenal. He was not in the squad for the Community Shield with Liverpool on Saturday.
