Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee. Sokratis has made the switch from Borussia Dortmund where he won two Bundesliga titles and one German Cup having signed for them in 2013. Earlier the defender admitted that his former teammates Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan played a key role in his decision to join Arsenal as they called him for many times and invited to join them.
Sokratis’ former and present teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan has welcomed him to the new club on his social media account.
"Welcome Sokratis! We're all happy to see you in our team," Mkhitaryan said.
