Seems like the agent of Sokratis Papastathopoulos is being busy these days, working on a transfer that would put an end to the Greece international’s multiyear presence at Borussia Dortmund.
If you’re young, you have a lot of time to win things. But I’m not young any more, time is getting shorter and I really want to win a title
the 29-year-old defender was quoted by Funke Mediengruppe after the end of the Bundesliga, and just before Dortmund faced Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Pokal final.
Borussia did win the Cup, but seems like Sokratis wants more than that, and a move away from Germany could be just what he needs at this stage of his career.
According to reports, both Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in him, but at any of those two he wouldn’t be guaranteed regular game time. Plus, in Arsenal’s case, winning the Premier League title wouldn’t be much more feasible than… staying at Dortmund and giving it another shot next season against Bayern Munich (among others).
According to the same reports, both Antonio Conte and Arsene Wenger have a good opinion on the Greek defender, but he’s not at the top of their list, and could be signed only if attempts to sign other defenders fail, for whatever reason.
