Arsenal defender linked with Liverpool

Arsenal defender Sokratis Papasthathopoulos is the latest name to be linked with Liverpool.

The Premier League champions may be forced into the transfer market in January following the injury to Joe Gomes on England duty. The defender has had knee surgery and is set to miss a substantial part of the rest of the season.

He joins Virgil van Dijk on the long-term injury, whilst Trent Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho will also miss some games with injury issues of their won.

Sokratis is a player that Jurgen Klopp knows well, having managed him at Borussia Dortmund.

He is out of contract at the Emirates next summer and has been left out of both the Europa League and Premier League squad by Mikel Arteta.

Given his current situation with the Gunners, a deal that allows the central defender to join Liverpool for a nominal fee could be negotiated, allowing Arsenal to get his wages off their books.
