Defender’s Arsenal move to be confirmed next month despite deal being agreed

Robert Pires has high hopes for Arsenal bound midfielder

Robert Pires has high hopes for Arsenal bound midfielder

Arsenal have been working to convince Wilshere to stay at the Emirates Stadium, but the midfielder is not short of options, with Everton and West Ham both linked with wanting to keep him within the Premier League.

The 22-year-old Turkish global Caglar Soyuncu, who plays his club football with Freiburg, is the latest name to be linked with a switch for a fee reported to be in the region of £35M. The 17-year-old has already declined a professional contract with Paris Saint-Germain and he is now being tipped to sign the same with Arsenal next month.

But Adli appeared to refute those claims with a post on Instagram which said: 'You have no idea what you're on about'.

Sokratis has been a key part of the Dortmund defence since joining the club from Werder Bremen five years ago but his future at the Bundesliga giants has been in serious doubt in recent months.


In other news, Arsenal have also looked to reform their midfield this summer but Emery is hoping to commit a significant proportion of the budget to tie up Aaron Ramsey as he sees the Welshman as one of the pillars of his team.

Adli was given his senior debut by Unai Emery last season as he came on as a late substitute in PSG's final game of the season against Caen.

The centre-half has been at Freiburg since making the switch from Altinordu in his homeland two years ago and has since established himself as one of the brightest defensive prospects in German football.
