Sport Sto Noto published a photograph of Sokratis at the airport of his hometown, Kalamata, and claim the defender was accompanied by his wife Xanthippi on a British Airways flight.

Sokratis also posted a picture on his Instagram page as he waved goodbye to the city where he was born.

‘Kalamata see you soon,’ he said.

Sampdoria and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira is also expected to join Sokratis at the club next week.

Sokratis father revealed last month that his son had rejected the advances of Manchester United to join Arsenal.

‘There was interest from United but for July, he had to wait until July for United,’ Charalambos Papastathopoulos told Greek radio station Radio 24/7 88.6.

‘United have a very good relationship with Dortmund, the teams speak a lot, but Sokratis chose to go to Arsenal.’
