It is then said that the Swiss National team Captain Stephen Lichsteiner will be joining his fellow national team mate Granit Xhaka in the Emirates stadium very soon. The Juventus player is said to be moving to England by a free transfer and will join Granit Xhaka in Arsenal. And finally we have Sokratis Papastathopoulos, the Dortmund centre back is tipped to be linked with a move to the Emirates stadium and is close to making a sign fee of £16million to move to Arsenal.
