Things seems to be taking shape at Arsenal in terms of transfer dealings despite the North London club not having a manager just yet. The Gunners are being linked with two defenders from the Bundesliga and it seems the deals could already be done.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka gave a subtle hint on his Instagram account when he liked a post which stated that Arsenal would be signing two Bundesliga defenders, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Caglar Soyuncu.

Arsenal parted ways with manager, Arsene Wenger after 22 years and it seems things are taking different shape at the club in regards to transfer dealings with the club seemingly managing transfer deals before the new manager is in place.

Xhaka liking the Instagram post “Sokratis and Soyuncu is done,” might not mean a lot in terms of confirming the moves but  there are several reports that claim Papastathopoulos and Soyuncu are Emirates bound.


With the transfer window officially open (siiiiigh!) these two deals could be done this week and it will be hopefully closely followed by Arsenal confirming their next manager with Unai Emery looking likely to replace Wenger.

With Mikel Arteta seemingly out of the frame, Unai Emery is believed to be the man the Arsenal board have lined up to replace the Frenchman and with the transfer window already open, Sven Mislintat and his team are already trying to get some deals done before the new man arrives it seems.
