Ian Wright was also happy with the gunners for bringing Sokratis Papastathopoulos at the Emirates Stadium and he took to Twitter to make his say on the new signing.
Another good piece of business by the club. Getting things done early in the window has been a challenge in the past. You can’t under estimate how much it helps to already have friends at a club?? #SOKRATIS
