Olympiacos chasing Arsenal defender Sokratis

Olympiacos are chasing Arsenal defender Sokratis.

The Gunners man, 32, was left out of Mikel Arteta's squads this season and has not made a senior appearance since the FA Cup final.

But Football.London says the Greek side are looking to take the central defender back to his homeland this month.

However, they may face competition from Turkish outfit Fenerbahce.

It is thought they have already made a move to try and land the ex-AC Milan defender in the hope of getting a deal over the line before the end of the month.

The 32-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season but Sokratis is eager to head for the exit door as soon as possible.

Arsenal are eager to get him off the books and will eye any transfer fee as an added bonus.
